jagger, dudamel, giants, louvre’s islam, olympics: 2012 - colored glass window film
Editors and Writers of the Bloomberg Muse Arts and Culture column chose their favorite moment of 2012.
Under the leadership of the executive editor, Manuela Holthoff, they are here: in contrast to my visit to Caracas in February, accompanied by Deborah Borda, Gustavo Dudamel, los Angeles Philharmonic and several bodyguards
Great crew, Crazy Town.
In the unofficial murder capital of South America, there is a clear shortage of garbage collectors, but a large number of children are hugging the Celtics with Taba hanging.
They are a product of El Sistema, a national education program dedicated to music.
Dudamel, the most famous graduate, whenever he and Phil's president Borda appear, he is crushed like a rock star, and Borda has the wisdom to find him.
I will never forget the sight of the city's Grand Theater, Teresa Carrino, where the capital's obsession with concrete reaches a creepy example.
Two steep, scary escalators drove us out.
Pass the dark jabillos and palm trees from the air lobby.
It was an amazing experience. -
It's like walking into a big prison in pilanesi.
Followed by the concert: Da Damel, a happy master, became serious on the podium, leading the joint efforts of Phil and Simon Boli yellowfin tuna and Spanish mackerel fish
Huge coconut crab captured and cooked on uninhabited Toby Island.
I saw the desert island full of screaming Nordis.
The night sky of zero light pollution and pristine coral reefs is amazing.
However, my favorite is the taste. Lance Esplund (

"Bernini: carving with clay" at the Metropolitan Museum of Art used to be-in-a-lifetime-
Activities including table top terracotta sculptures and related chalk drawings of the greatest craft or workshop on the 17 th
Century Italian sculptor
In his clay model, "the death of holy ludicha Albertoni", the image of this horizontal bedroom, porn and detachment, grabbed her breast in ecstasy
The last part of the show is an amazing mix of 14 angels, nine of whom stand in the hallway of heaven like a sentinel. Greg Evans (

Before the end of the raid we know, Catherine Bigelow's Zero darkness thirty is an attractive CIA thriller that has been condensed for ten yearslong U. S.
Search for the story of Osama bin Laden becoming a female secret agent obsessed with pursuing.
Just like the wonderful ending of Bonnie and Clyde, the violence of the raid is as jarring as the poetry of the film production.
What Bigelow's achievements need is not to cheer for the jingoism, or even for the catharsis of justice, but for the bold, breathtaking art.

FX's American Horror Story: Asylum has become a highlight of television.

A reviewer has not met himself a lot, but I have experienced it twice in 2012.
Lucian Floyd's "My Portrait" is on display at the National Portrait Gallery in London, which visited the Museum of Modern Art in Fort Worth, Texas.
I watched two shows.

The revival of Edward Albi's "Ladies from Dubuque" on Broadway-
A drama that confused Broadway critics and audiences after the 1980 premiere ---
It is sympathetic that this black comedy about a woman dying of cancer was named the best of the playwrights.
This is the masterpiece of the times finally catching up.

At the moment the Giants won the Super Bowl, I took to the stadium, my highest record this year.
The players hold the newborn and the manhugging.
Maras and Tisches are glowing.
On top of me, thousands of people share the victory.
When I got home, I brought a fleeting Souvenir: The sugar cookies decorated by Eli Manning and Victor Cruz jerseys.
The longer stay is the feeling of stepping on the touching lawn, scraps of paper in the air.
There is a little bit of this feeling in every charity event I report.
After all, helping others is as American as football.

When I heard from my favorite movie artist this year that this funky dog Uggie will be attending a White House press dinner, I immediately put him on my tracking list.
Despite the many celebrities, politicians and journalists, I managed to find Jack Russell.

The car that actually let me slack off
I didn't expect to like the Tesla Model S this year. All-
Electric and up to 300 miles in four
The size and price of the door is similar to that of the Porsche Panamera sedan (
The drive is excellent, but its interior, mixed with leather, wood and high
Knocked me out.
From locking the door to closing the panoramic roof, the huge touch screen controls most operations and works perfectly.
A glimpse into the future of our cars. Robert Heller (
London Rock critic)
There's a lot of innovation and new music to enjoy this year from places like Frank Ocean.
Still, my highlight this year is that the real masters are veterans of some industries like Paul Simon, who is sunny and optimistic, Leonard Cohen, whose songs are full of sex and religion, death and depressionBoth are life-affirming.
At the age of 77, Cohen can still attract Berlin, and he will tour again in 2013.
One should be careful.

Berlin art reporter)
The powerful music of Leos Janacek's opera, Jenufa, and the tragic central image of a baby frozen in the river, all accompanied me.
This is probably in the wrong hands.
Loy was deeply moved by the elegant and simple stage performance of the German opera house in Berlin.
The walls slide backwards in a clear set of scenes to reveal the season;
A piece of golden corn, a layer of snow.
The singers were completely convincing and vividly presented the tragic interaction of Jenufa, the loser and overprotective stepmother she was unfortunately obsessed.
I'm sure I'm not the only one to brush tears at the end.
What is even more sad is that I saw many empty seats that night.

The Field "camera captures all the light that moves in any direction in the scene.
This means that you can re-focus your photos and even change your perspective after taking a photo. (
Can anyone else watch it online? )
You never have to kick yourself because you are not careful to focus on the ball instead of the child.
It's easier to use than a point. and-
Take a camera or even a smartphone.

It took a few hours for people to wear white boots and walk into the Doug Wheeler exhibition at David Zwirner gallery in New York.
The experience begins with what seems like nothing to be seen, only immersed in a Lost Galaxy.
The installation makes it impossible to judge the size or depth to be minimal and magical.
However, what seems to be the fog reveals the form of other tourists, and the intense light also emerges surprisingly small shapes in front of my eyes.
Wheeler then shifts the light slightly from dawn to dusk, and the shadows stretch as the gray turns purple.
It feels like it's over. Sinta renderborg (New York editor)
In this city full of great music, the Boston Symphony Orchestra conquered the city at Carnegie Hall with the exciting performance of Beethoven's "tragic music.
Chorus Conductor John Oliver stepped in at the last minute, leading the orchestra as well as the Tanglewood Music Festival Choir and soloist Christine Brewer, Michelle Dejan, Simon O'Neill and Eric O.
From the opening "Carey Allison" to the transcendental "Holy God" and "agnas Day", the glorious voice echoed in the hall, let us know why Beethoven himself likes this strange neglected work best. John Mariani (

There is a lot of hype when the word "handmade" applies to spirits, indicating that some people are making it by hand (another cliche)

At the Venice world premiere of Paul Thomas Anderson's master.
He was hypnotized in the film as a savage disciple of Scientology.

The curator of the Picasso Museum in Paris, Anne bardarsurrey, selected more than 200 pieces from the collection of the French museum, and participated in her large-scale exhibition at Milan's Reale Palace.

Tollina Herrera said in her lyrical, accent-heavy English: "We won't talk about the price of my clothes because, to be honest, I don't know it myself.
Her mission is to convey the spirit of her brand.
Wearing a crisp black pencil skirt and a white shirt, she sat in a silk chair surrounded by vases full of roses.
She laughed, she flirted. -
In short, she embodies the smart, female women who design clothes for her.
That's why she was so happy with the interview.
Not only did she use charm, she was intoxicated with it as if it were the whole point of her fashion line.
