Side Effects, staring Rooney Mara, Jude Law, Channing Tatum, and Catherine Zeta-Jones, is a slick psychological thrill ride. It screws with your head in the same way the film's fictional, experimental drug Ablixa might do—which is, it would seem, exactly the point. Writer Scott Z. Burns and director Steven Soderbergh manipulate their audience, just as the characters in the film manipulate each other.
"Sometimes I think of my paintings as people," says the Brooklyn-based artist Keltie Ferris, whose solo show runs November 29th through January 12th at Mitchell-Innes & Nash in New York. "Like I'm sending them out into the world and they'll have their own relationships to people and writers and cameras. You make them the best you can and then they go on to have their own lives."
Mesko, who usually spends his time shooting for Vogue and Harpers Bazaar Australia, is applying the photographs he took of the Manhattan skyline in the days preceding the storm to his passion project Temps Des Reves.
"The whole body reacts to color," says the 37 year-old Miami-based artist Jim Drain. "If you were to walk into an all-neon-pink room, it would be difficult not to react. I think it is a unified, human thing to feel color with everything. It is like standing next to a bass speaker plugged into your eyeballs."

"My work has always pursued perfection, which is unachievable; nevertheless, it has continued in its tragic quest," said the artist Jeff Koons in 1987. A newly released art book Jeff Koons (Hatje Cantz) helps contextualize his development as an artist by focusing on three of his most critical bodies of work.
Tomorrow night at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the musical duo Dean & Britta (Dean Wareham and Britta Phillips, plus their ensemble) will perform their own enchanting original instrumental and vocal compositions alongside 13 of Warhol's four-minute screen tests.

Asked where he saw himself in five years, he replied, "I'd love to [help the U.S.] win a Davis Cup title, and I'd love to win a Grand Slam." One month later he won the US Open and went on to win the Davis cup in 2007.
Versatile is one way to describe the filmmaker and director Adria Petty; tonight, she is nominated for three MTV Video Music Awards for her co-directing efforts on videos for Beyoncé's "Countdown," Coldplay and Rihanna's "Princess of China," and her pal Regina Spektor's "All the Row Boats."
It's difficult to tell whether the Art of Knit, United Colors of Benetton's pop-up store in SoHo, is a shop, a gallery, or a toy store for adults. A giant knitted, pale-blue whale hangs on the wall where a painting should be; along with a soft, cream clock as big as a beach umbrella, woolen cacti, watermelons, and pretzels.
