NEW YORK, NY.- Its bad! one person wrote. If theres going to be a riot in NYC, itll be over this, wrote another. Someone else posted, This is literally the worst design Ive ever, ever seen. Just a few hours after the new We (heart) NYC logo was revealed Monday, reaction on Twitter and beyond was not merely negative, but brutal. The design is part of a campaign aiming to cut through divisiveness and negativity that accompanied the pandemic, according to Kathryn Wylde, the president and CEO of the Partnership for New York City.

LOS ANGELES, CA.- 'Thought Forms', which opened on March 18th, and is the artists second solo exhibition with Praz-Delavallade will end on April 22nd, 2023. Chris Hoods most recent body of work features pop culture iconography both familiar and banal. Fragmented surrealist clichés of melting clocks and burning candles commingle with cartoonish, disembodied hands and faces. These playful elements drift aimlessly across a vivid, shifting color field, often serially repeating across the composition like a fading echo. Their dynamic background is the bleeding through of paint applied to the reverse side of the canvas, a distinct approach central to the artists practice in which the canvas consequently functions as a veila thin partition between the conscious and subconscious, the mundane and the uncanny, the immediate and the profound. ...

NEW YORK, NY.- I had a most remarkable but unsettling experience last week. Craig Mundie, the former chief of research and strategy officer for Microsoft, was giving me a demonstration of GPT-4, the most advanced version of the artificial intelligence chatbot ChatGPT, developed by OpenAI and launched in November. Craig was preparing to brief the board of my wifes museum, Planet Word, of which he is a member, about the effect ChatGPT will have on words, language and innovation. You need to understand, Craig warned me before he started his demo, this is going to change everything about how we do everything. I think that it represents mankinds greatest invention to date. It is qualitatively different and it will be transformational. Large language modules like ChatGPT will steadily increase in their capabilities, Craig added, and take us toward a form of artificial general intelligence, delivering efficiencies in operations, ideas, discoveries and i ...

Following a folk tale through the Himalayas NEW YORK, NY.- In a high hamlet, a two-hour trek up a verdant slope beneath ice-clad Himalayan peaks, an argument erupted over a folk tale. Two brothers, Pralad Singh Dariyal, 60, and Hira Singh Dariyal, 77, heatedly debated which nearby village in the Johar Valley was once the home of the storys heroine. Eventually agreeing on a few possible locations, Hira said that the story, which is sung as a ballad and which he remembered from childhood, was virtually unknown today among the areas young people. Theyre the YouTube generation, he explained with a shrug. No one even knows how to sing it anymore, Pralad added. The voice of Pralads wife, Sundari Devi, rang out from the kitchen into the courtyard, where I sat with the brothers and a couple of other people in front of clothing drying on a line and pieces of a butchered sheep ...

Exploring a Malaysian jewel box packed with color and spice NEW YORK, NY.- Try this way, says Zainal Abidin, an affable manager at the Prestige in George Town, Malaysia, cocking his head to one side. Zainal is showing me around the hotel, which is named after the 2006 Christopher Nolan film about two rival magicians. Im supposed to see an illusion in which the corridor entrance transforms into a mirror, but its not coming. Or this way, he says, bending his head to the left, then back again. I follow suit we must look like a couple of nodding dashboard dogs and abruptly the mirror appears. I take a step back. Zainal laughs, and I venture that this effect must be confusing for guests returning late from one of George Towns many bars. But Zainal shakes his head: Guests love it. The corridors are actually very popular for Instagram shoots, he says. Most travelers know Malaysia for the beaches of Langkawi, ... More
Patrick French, unsparing bographer of V.S. Naipaul, dies at 56 NEW YORK, NY.- Patrick French, a historian and biographer whose books include acclaimed accounts of Indias march toward independence and the life of writer V.S. Naipaul, The World Is What It Is, died Thursday in London. He was 56. His wife, Meru Gokhale, said the cause was cancer. French made an impression with his first book, published when he was still in his 20s. Titled Younghusband: The Last Great Imperial Adventurer (1994), it examined the life of Francis Edward Younghusband, the British adventurer who explored Tibet and other areas in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. His life seemed to reflect the Wests fascination with the East, conquest and wonder dancing hand in hand, French wrote. To re-create that life, he did more than just dive into archives; he retraced Younghusbands treks to hard-to-reach Himalayan ... More
Reconstructing Kyiv, one synth wave at a time KYIV.- Its disorienting: Again and again these past few weeks, Ive been walking through New York and thinking Im somewhere else.

Last week I was riding the subway to Harlem and the announcer called out the wrong line. Next stop, Maidan Nezalezhnosti In my headphones, Ive had an album on loop: Kyiv Eternal, a ravishing audioscape of the Ukrainian capital by composer and electronic musician Heinali.

'Shucked': A Broadway musical that doubles down on the corn NEW YORK, NY.- Shane McAnallys boffo songwriting career got off to a slow start, but by 2013 he and his frequent writing partner Brandy Clark were finally having success. The Band Perrys Better Dig Two and Miranda Lamberts Mamas Broken Heart, both cowritten by McAnally and Clark, reached No. 1 and No. 2 on the Billboard country chart. The songs were hits, sure, but they were also unique, especially in the vivid imagery of their lyrics, which found new ways to describe jealousy and heartache. People in Nashville, Tennessee, took notice, including singer Jake Owen, who offered his opinion of Better Dig Two and Mamas Broken Heart. He said to me, Those sound like songs from musicals, McAnally recalled recently, sitting in a second-floor room of the Nederlander Theatre in Manhattan. He viewed the comment as a backhanded ... More

On a day like today, Spanish painter and sculptor Juan Gris was born
March 23, 1887. José Victoriano (Carmelo Carlos) González-Pérez (March 23, 1887 - May 11, 1927), better known as Juan Gris, was a Spanish painter and sculptor born in Madrid who lived and worked in France most of his life. Closely connected to the innovative artistic genre Cubism, his works are among the movement's most distinctive. In a file picture taken on January 30, 2014 a gallery assistant looks at Juan Gris's "Nature mort a la nappe a carreaux" (1915) during a press call for the "Impressionist, Modern and Surrealist Art" sale at Christie's auction house in London.
