If you’ve seen Kanye West’s “Power” video, you’ll recognize Brambilla’s touch. If you haven't, get ready for a spectacular visual treat. As soon as you put on the 3D glasses, you’ll feel like you fell down the rabbit hole. Assembled from hundreds of film clips, Creation [megaplex] is a swirling spiral that somehow encompasses the creation of the universe, the big bang, the id of every Hollywood animator, plus cameos from Julie Andrews, Tom Cruise and Jim Carrey. Impossible to explain but compelling to watch. And don’t worry: If the words “video installation” scare you, rest assured there’s nothing pretentious about Creation. It’s beautiful fun that leaves you scratching your head, asking, “How’d he do that?”

This is the blockbuster retrospective in the biggest blue chip gallery on the block. Jean-Michel Basquiat was 28 when he died but he produced a massive body of work. Did it live up to the hype over the last 30 years? The answer is a resounding YES, as this show demonstrates. The colors, the primitive use of graffiti, the images that reference Charlie Parker, Cassius Clay, Sugar Ray Robinson, all look just as fresh as they did when they first started making waves, and seeing this many pieces in one show is a real treat. The work is acerbic, witty, angry and ultimately beautiful. Warning: Thursday nights are packed. Last week the line snaked half way up the block.

In a decaying 200-year-old upstate farmhouse this Icelandic artist assembled a group of 9 musicians to collaborate on an emotional and moving piece of music based on ABBA’s last album, The Visitors. Each musician is shot in one room and shown on a different screens in the gallery, but the piece is held together by the soundtrack. It’s a highly-styled video performance piece that runs the emotional gamut from melancholy to joy. I stayed for the full 53 minutes and left with a feeling of pure pleasure, an exhilarating sensation that most theater, art or performance rarely achieves.
