"Inopportune: Stage One" (2004) - Guggenheim Museum - 5th Ave. bw. E88th & E89th - map it here
You still have 3 days to run to the Guggenheim Museum to see I Want to Believe, the retrospective of the works of Chinese artist Cai Guo-Qiang. Hurry up: it closes on the 28th!!
In the Frank Lloyd Wright rotunda, seven white cars are suspended as if they were flipping down into the space, with neon sparks flashing in different colors. It is full or energy, motion, colors, lights, noises, explosion. It is shocking, extravagant, powerful, amazing and just so fascinating.
There's much more to see. If you're intrigued, take a look at The New York Times slideshow of the exhibition, its accompanying article and a video showing how Cai Guo-Qiang creates his gunpowder drawings:
