cai guo-qiang at the guggenheim. i saw video from his 'explosion events' while in berlin last year and as soon as i saw the words 'gun powder drawings', i knew that it had to be the same person. the videos were really beautiful and we watched them many times over.
his installations look to be pretty awe-inspiring as well.
'head on' 99 life-sized replicas of wolves.
the other show is at moma's PS1. entitled 'wack!: art and the feminist revolution'. the exhibition spans the period of 1965 to 1980 and includes 120 artists and artist groups.
both shows are up until the middle of may so i've got time.
