At first glance, the sculpture — which, along with the rest of the exhibition, will be up through Sept. 24 — resembles stacked layers of melted wax running down the sides of veined, multicolored stones.[...] the eventual outcome, an ambitious, imposing sculpture standing over 10 feet tall, came as a surprise to even Al-Hadid herself.For “Liquid City,” Al-Hadid deliberately looked to incorporate architectural, historical and literary elements into her work.The rock (actually a combination of foam, plaster, wood and other construction materials) has been twisted into smooth, humanoid shapes akin to Renaissance sculpture and painting.The wiry drips of polymer gypsum and paint (not wax, although it mimics it from afar) create a maze of thin columns and boxed-in space that echo the elegant geometry of Italian architect and surveyor Giambattista Nolli’s elaborate maps of Rome.Glimpses of Gothic cathedral windows, with their elongated elegance, emerge as fluid arches atop a steel frame.

- Stephen Colbert grilling Oliver Stone about Putin is excruciating to watch
By Johnny Lieu - Tuesday Jun 13, 2017
It shouldn't be surprising in this current political climate that Oliver Stone's four-part Showtime series about Russia's leader, Vladimir Putin, hasn't had the warmest of receptions.
Stephen Colbert is more known for his quips, but a meeting with Stone on The Late Show on Monday proved too irresistible for the host. Colbert asked the director if he was "cosying up" to what some would call a dictator.
"You know, you have to be polite because this was a two-year deal, and it was four times, and I was with him numerous times," Stone explained.
Colbert admittedly hadn't watched the series yet, but asked Stone what would surprise him about Putin when watching it. Read more...More about Entertainment, Video, Russia, Stephen Colbert, and The Late Show With Stephen Colbert
