NEW YORK, NY.- From the bustling streets of Tehran to the eclectic avenues of New York City, Hossein Edalatkhah’s (Hoss) journey as an artist has been as dynamic and nuanced as the artworks he creates. His story is one of resilience, innovation, and the relentless pursuit of expression in environments that range from restrictive to liberating. Today, Hoss is celebrated for his provocative works that boldly navigate themes of identity, tradition, and sexual politics through a lens that is both deeply personal and universally relatable. Hoss was born in 1979 in Tehran, a city where the artistic expressions are often closely monitored and censored. Despite these constraints, or perhaps because of them, Hoss's early fascinati ...

NEW YORK, NY.- The emergence of several new observation decks in New York City in recent years has set off a dizzying competition for visitors’ attention and dollars. Each deck seemingly tries to one-up the others with enhanced and immersive experiences, almost turning them into amusement parks in the sky.

MELBOURNE.- Breaking away from the conventional notion of cakes as purely edible treats, this exhibition pushes the boundaries of creativity and challenges the traditional definition of sculpture.

Dave Loggins, who wrote hits for himself and others, dies at 76
NEW YORK, NY.- Dave Loggins, a chart-topping Nashville songwriter for the likes of Kenny Rogers and the Oak Ridge Boys who also notched his own Top 10 pop hit with the wistful “Please Come to Boston” and wrote the enduring theme for the Masters golf tournament, died July 10 in Nashville, Tennessee. He was 76. His death, in a hospice facility, was confirmed by his son, Kyle, who did not specify the cause. Loggins, a second cousin of pop star Kenny Loggins, released five albums as a solo artist in the 1970s, but he scored only one hit single himself. “Please Come to Boston,” a soft-rock weeper about a rambling man trying to woo a lover to follow him as he chases his dreams in one city after another, climbed to No. 1 on Billboard’s easy listening chart and No. 5 on the magazine’s Hot 100 in 1974. It was nominated for a Grammy Award for ... More

On a day like today, Italian artist Caravaggio died
July 18, 1610. Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio (29 September 1571 - 18 July 1610) was an Italian artist active in Rome, Naples, Malta, and Sicily between 1593 and 1610. His paintings, which combine a realistic observation of the human state, both physical and emotional, with a dramatic use of lighting, had a formative influence on the Baroque school of painting. In this image: A photographer and a cameraman take a picture of Caravaggio's painting "The calling of Saints Peter and Andrew" in Rome, Monday, Nov. 20, 2006. The painting, owned by Queen Elizabeth II, languished for years in a dusty storeroom before being identified as the work of Italian master Caravaggio, on show at the Gate Termini Art Gallery in Rome.
