The Golden Egg – Celebrating 50 Years of the Egg Chair
Thursday, March 27, 7–9pm
Arne Jacobsen’s classic Egg Chair turns 50. Help us mark the 50th anniversary of this mid-century icon. Designed by Arne Jacobsen in 1958 for the lobby of the SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen, the Egg Chair is still used in advertising, film and television as a symbol of sophisticated urbanism. There will be several Egg chairs available for sitting, swiveling and lounging, and they will serve up Prosecco, deviled eggs and other golden hors d’oeuvres.

Mobile Mondays New York is back! If you want to satisfy the geek inside you, join them tonight, March 24th at 6:75pm for another geeky talk.
The topic is: The Evolution and Monetization of Mobile Video - part of the enabler track of the Ubiquitous Web series
Recent advances in mobile video players, streaming technologies and transcoding platforms are enabling the transmission and reception of video universally across fixed and mobile devices. This evolution is creating new ways to monetize mobile video and develop new mobile audiences, a new advertising base and potentially new types of social networks.
In parallel, mobile video broadcasting is being deployed with dedicated spectrum to relieve the bandwidth bottlenecks that will result when video streaming becomes widely popular over the mobile internet. How will these services complement each other?
Mobile Monday will present speakers from five emerging companies active in mobile video and a panel discussion will follow. As always the event will end with free wine and beer and hopefully some party food!
When: Monday, March 24, 2008 at 6:45 PM
Where: Samsung Experience Center, Time Warner Center – Shops at Columbus Circle10 Columbus Circle, 3rd floor, New York City, New York, 10022

The Whisper of Fog (El Murmullo de la Niebla), March 6, 2008 - March 29, 2008
NY Studio Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of recent work by Mexican artist Carlos Rodal. Mr. Rodal’s work establishes a connection between the Mesoamerican civilization and Western contemporary art, reflecting a personal language, which follows in the tradition of 20th century Mexican painters such as Rufino Tamayo and Juan Soriano. The artist is located in a postmodern global/local culture, incorporating the expressions of both native and distant cultures, past and present, with a deep connection to the roots of these millenarian societies.
The artist’s personal visions originate from the Southwest’s tropical and desert regions, which influence his references to the plant and animal kingdoms. They are worlds of opposite nature that when encountered are intertwined and complemented, located in spatial atmospheres where the compositions and figures float in space amidst a light fog. The chromatic scheme is characterized by a range of intense and brilliant shades that are reminiscent of color used not only in the cultures of contemporary Mexican pueblos but also in pieces of ceramic, frescoes and codices found in Mesoamerican archeology. Poetic and magical aspects of the work act as a transforming energy for human beings. They convey the fundamental premises of the artist’s aesthetic creed: liberty and honesty both in life and in the process of elaborating the art works.

West London Projects invite you at a private view, tonight, 5th of March from 6.30 pm to 8.30 pm, of the show
It Can Start Whenever You Want.
It Can Start Whenever You Want deals with the transition and potentiality of materials. The artists in the show use varied modes of representation and action. They generate performativity and flux through their specific use of materials that can be both unsubstantial yet solid, in motion but still, analogue and digital. The different states of aggregation pervade each other creating an open system held up by its constant instability.
