Beniamino Marini reports in from New York City

Dear Shaded Viewers,

Beniamino gives a last report from NYC before flying back to Milan.

the “Meeting”, by James Turrell (1989) at PS1 – MoMa (Queens)
this room, as any other permanent installation at MoMa PS1, belongs to the artists. It is open only at dusk. The room has no ceiling. You can sit and look at people looking in the air. You notice what goes on in New York sky: airplanes, birds, clouds. It opens (weather permitting) only at dusk. Wonderful.


MET chandeliers by Hans Harold Rath (1960) at Moss Gallery, SoHo. The small one 21,000 $
They are part of “The 180 year Waltz”, Legendary crystal from the archives of J & L Lobmeyr, Vienna. Much better than Swarovski.
The chandeliers were designed by Rath for the Metropolitan at Lincoln Center (by architect Oscar Niemeyer)
