new york 1

The first thing I came across in New York was an anti-war demonstration; they reckon nearly 100,000 people turned up.  As well as a large Police presence, there were lots of big black cars, with blacked-out windows, flashing lights and sirens dashing around as well.  Hmmm...

Then to the Guggenheim Museum.  This was something that I was really looking forward to; not just for the contents - but also for the building itself.  Completed in 1959, it was designed by the architect Frank Lloyd Wright - and it is arguably his greatest work.

The main exhibition which practically filled the museum was Matthew Barney's Cremaster Cycle - five separate works being shown together for the first time.
