– The work of Yayoi Kusama is articulated around the great themes and questions that have guided her creative explorations: Infinity, Accumulation, Radical Connectivity, Biocosmic, Death, and Force of Life.
– Through paintings, drawings, sculptures, installations, and archival materials on her happenings and performances, the exhibition shows the way in which Kusama addresses the existential questions that drive her artistic practice.
– A pioneer in the countercultural scene of the late 1960s, Kusama denounced racial and gender discriminations, critiqued war and militarism, and drew media attention with her public happenings.
– Kusama’s interest in nature is at once mystical and literal, as illustrated by her pumpkins, which the artist identifies as a kind of benevolent vegetable spirit and as a reflection of her own soul, though at the same time they offer an immediate identification with nature.
– The joyful and colorful works of her recent series, My Eternal Soul (2009–21), explore Kusama’s commitment to transforming her suffering into art “for the healing of all mankind”.
The Guggenheim Museum Bilbao presents Yayoi Kusama: 1945 to Now, an ambitious retrospective dedicated to one of the most influential figures of contemporary art and a cultural icon of the 21st century. The exhibition, sponsored by Iberdrola, will immerse the visitor in the obsessive, singular, avant-garde universe of Yayoi Kusama (b. 1929, Japan) that has evolved and unfolded over the seven decades of her extraordinary artistic career.
From the first drawings she made as a teenager during World War II to her most recent immersive works, this retrospective gathers a selection of 200 paintings, sculptures, performances, moving images, large-scale installations, and archive materials.
LEVC (London Electric Vehicle Company) has announced an enhancement for its TX taxi and VN5 light van, with both vehicles benefitting from a larger and more efficient battery.
The 34.6 kWh unit upgrades LEVC’s state-of-the-art eCity powertrain, offering increased capacity (up from 31 kWh) and greater efficiency, with even lower CO2 emissions for the TX and VN5, bolstering the contribution of LEVC’s vehicles to improving urban air quality.
Thanks to the new battery, the TX taxi now emits just 14g/km of CO2 (down from 19g/km) while the VN5 emits 17g/km (down from 19g/km). Drivers and owner operators are driving further too, with TX’s electric-only range now 78 miles* (up from 64 miles) and its total range increasing to 333 miles (up from 318 miles). VN5’s electric-only range improves to 73 miles (up from 64 miles) and 328 miles* in total (up from 318 miles).
LEVC has manufactured the TX – the world’s most advanced electric taxi – at its groundbreaking facility since 2017, as well as its electric VN5 van from 2019. Since the first TX taxi was delivered in January 2018 in London, more than 8,500 vehicles have now been built for global markets.
Alex Nan, CEO of LEVC, commented: “With thousands of our vehicles sold around the world, LEVC’s eCity technology is the powertrain choice for the modern taxi driver. The updated battery further bolsters the already compelling business case for our customers, with significant benefits for drivers, owner operator, while helping to improve air quality in urban environments.
“Our award-winning TX continues to satisfy demand for clean and accessible mobility demands the world over. With new markets adopting the TX, we’re proud to be making such a significant contribution to improving air quality in more than 20 markets.”
Demand continues to surge for the company’s smart, green, safe and accessible mobility solutions, with the TX electric taxi having now overtaken the diesel-powered TX4 as the most common black cab operating in London.
The upgraded battery for TX and VN5 follows LEVC’s recent announcement regarding its innovative new pure electric vehicle technology, which will transform the brand from a high-end taxi manufacturer to a leading provider of e-mobility solutions. LEVC’s Space Oriented Architecture (SOA) is the world’s first EV platform focused on setting new standards for onboard space. The architecture will bring interior-optimised, zero-emission mobility to more consumers than ever before, while enabling LEVC to enter new sectors, outside of the existing TX and VN5 models.

Decorating and furnishing a house can bring charm, light and life into any home, which is why many Americans will invest a lot of time and care into which style they choose to go for, but which ones are the most popular across the US right now?
The study was conducted by interior design studio Hovia, which analyzed Google Trends data with over 575 search terms relating to 25 interior design styles to reveal the most popular style in each state.
Modern Farmhouse is the top interior design style in the US, with 32 states choosing this style over any other. Searches for this particular style are the most popular in Texas, where searches average 8,647 times per month, followed by Ohio with 3,717 searches and North Carolina with 3,497.
Similar to country-style homes, Modern Farmhouse gives off a cleaner and fresher aesthetic by including white or light colours accompanied by pottery, wooden furnishings, rattan baskets and earth-toned décor.
This modern spin on country style has been popularised through social media, television and movies which helps to aid people in inspiration, giving them platforms to copy as viewers. Vaulted ceilings, large verandas and neutral-coloured deckings are often top picks for those into the style, but not to forget that this particular style loves to draw attention to classic and traditional features which may already be in the home. Americans also cherish the farmhouse element of this style through its representation of family values, hard work and simplicity.
Feng Shui is the second most popular interior design style in the US, with five states searching for it over any other style. Alaska, California, Hawaii, Nevada and NewMexico are the states which dominate the searches for the style, which is known to focus on making any space organized and natural.
The style originates from Chinese art, which helps to organize any space to result in positive energy and improve overall well-being, as well as making your living space harmonious and balanced. If Feng Shui is done correctly, the balance of yin-yang energies causes a constant flow of balance, improving your life.
Rustic and Coastal
The third most popular design styles are Rustic and Coastal, which both have four states searching for these styles the most.
While Montana, North Dakota, Pennsylvania and Wyoming favor Rustic interiors, Delaware, Florida, Rhode Island and South Carolina favor the Coastal style.
The rustic style concentrates on organic textures such as stone, wood and metal, whereas the coastal style of interior design focuses on reflecting elements of the beach, commonly through beach-style decorations and emphasis on light shades of green and blue.
Mid-Century Modern, French Country, Industrial and Eclectic
The fourth most popular interior design styles each have one state favouring over any other interior design style:
Oregon’s most favored interior design style is Mid-Century Modern, which includes graphic shapes alongside a combination of both manufactured and natural decorations in muted tones in vibrant colors. There are normally a lot of outdoor furnishings bought inside the home in this style , hich helps to create an earthy-minimalistic atmosphere.
Mississippi residents tend to opt for the French Country interior style, which can often be mistaken for farmhouse or cottage core styles due to its homey feel. The French Country style encompasses more luxury elements, often expressed through curved regal furniture in golds and creams. Fluted and cabriole chair legs are often used in this style as opposed to the harsher shapes seen in farmhouse-designed homes as well as more polished and finished paint jobs compared to that shabby chic look other styles incorporate.
New York’s most popular interior design style is Industrial which focuses on materials such as utilitarian and solid metals; often, restored furniture is seen in homes decorated in this style as it brings an effortless character to a space. Wood, iron, steel and aluminium are all quintessential elements of this particular style, as well as rich leathers and copper finishings.
Arkansas opts for the Eclectic interior style, essentially a timeless mix-match of décor and furniture. This style tends to incorporate pieces from all different interior design styles, resulting in a more individual and personal feel. This style never goes out of fashion as the decoration stays ambiguous through constant changeups and re-organization when new pieces are added.
“It is exciting to see just how desirable the Modern Farmhouse style of interior design is across the US, with it being the landslide winner in popularity. It is also interesting to notice regionally how many states’ locations have had their design preferences influenced by seasonal trends.
Overall, remembering to surround yourself in a space where you feel the most comfortable and relaxed is the perfect scenario to indulge in a happy and positive life, which is why it is so important to many Americans looking to decorate their homes that they make the right choice for both their home and themselves.”
Genre-bending singer-songwriter Michael J Woodard captures the irresistible appeal of someone who’s likely to be nothing but “Trouble” on his exuberant new single.
Woodard created “Trouble” with L.A based writer/producer duo GOLDSPACE and songwriter Mishon Ratliff. Released today via Unsub Records – the indie label founded by Katy Perry, who has championed Woodard since his days as a finalist on “American Idol” – “Trouble” is available for download / streaming HERE. View the lyric video HERE.
“‘Trouble’ is a record that is so special to me,” says Michael J Woodard. “When making it, I went into the studio wanting to create something that makes people feel good. A song that people can groove to and that everyone in some way can relate to. It’s a song about that person in our lives who probably isn’t good for us, but who we can’t stand to stay away from. I think almost everyone has had at least one of those people in their lives.”
Praising the “energy and optimism” of his first two singles – “why you texting me” and “hope full” – Atwood Magazine said, “It’s a rare treat to find an artist who doesn’t attempt to mask their joy for their craft behind mystique or the guise of ‘coolness.’” He performed “hope full” on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.” The addictively upbeat pop-leaning track “show some teeth” followed in 2022. View the official video HERE.
Woodard grew up in Philadelphia, singing in church and at the performing arts elementary school he attended. By the time he was 13, he had sung at such high-profile events as the US Open and performed for Barack Obama when the then-president visited Philadelphia. He developed his vocal chops and songwriting acumen, working in the home studio he created and sharing the results online. After high school, Woodard headed to Hollywood to study at Musicians Institute. While he loved their program, he recalls, “I just wanted to go out there and make it all happen.” Soon he found himself in the Top 5 on “American Idol,” signed to Unsub Records and voicing the title character in the Netflix animated musical film and TV series, Arlo The Alligator Boy.
“It’s really important to me to put out music that will uplift people,” Woodard explains. “All the songwriting comes from my heart and it’s my way of expressing the things I need to get off my chest, but the number-one goal is to give people hope—which I think is so necessary at a time like this.”

Dakota Johnson stars in a new film and imagery that revisit the emblematic handbag’s storied origins.
JlA longstanding mainstay within the House’s collections, ‘The Jackie’ experienced a well-chronicled rise to icon status—ever since its debut in 1961, the handbag’s perpetual presence on the arms of celebrated figures around the world crystallized its everlasting association with their signature sophistication.
Dakota Johnson finds herself at the latest inflection point of the line’s celebrated chronology in which a certain attitude encounters a certain era, marking the beginning of a new chapter through the House’s latest campaign. Johnson makes her way through everyday moments in Los Angeles with different versions of the Jackie 1961, each with its own personality, each perfectly paired to the occasion. The film and imagery, captured by Glen Luchford, pay homage to the style’s storied origins as spontaneous snapshots highlight the silhouette’s intrinsic versatility and enduring elegance, reflecting a state of co-existence that spans decades and personas.
The Jackie 1961
Following a distinguished line of reiterations, each emblematic of its time, today’s Jackie 1961 emerges to transcend the traditional with its sleek silhouette and universal attitude.
The selection is presented in three different sizes—mini, small, and medium—in a wide range of colors that highlights the design’s inherent versatility. Clean lines bring the focus to the unique piston closure, as well as the quality of the material itself, whether natural grain, patent, or precious leather, or the emblematic GG Supreme canvas. A longer, removable shoulder strap, either in leather or as a chain, enhances the Jackie 1961’s adaptable personality and practicality. Within each collection, the House introduces creative interpretations, including in woven raffia and straw, as well as with velvet tapestry patterns for Cruise 2023.
The original model introduced in 1961 became expressive of the 1960s and 1970s jetsetter lifestyle for which Gucci was known and new sensibilities were brought to the signature style in 1999 and 2009, drawing from a contemporary intuition and attitude and ever–assuming new characters that defy definition.
Founded in Florence, Italy in 1921, Gucci is one of the world’s leading luxury brands. Following the House’s centenary, Gucci forges ahead continuing to redefine fashion and luxury while celebrating creativity, Italian craftsmanship, and innovation.
Gucci is part of the global luxury group Kering, which manages renowned houses in fashion, leather goods, jewelry, and eyewear.
Today, GRAMMY® Award-nominated powerhouse trio Jonas Brothers return with their anxiously-awaited new single “Wings,” out now via Republic Records—listen to “Wings” HERE. “Wings” launches a new era for the band and is the first single from their sixth full-length record—and one of the most anticipated releases of the year—The Album, out May 12th.
The new song is released alongside the official music video featuring actress and self-proclaimed Jonas Brothers fan Haley Lu Richardson [White Lotus]. Shot in Las Vegas and directed by Josh Rimmey and Zach Williams, the feel-good video includes an impromptu hotel room dance party and surprise cameo by the Jonas Brothers themselves—watch HERE.
Kicking off another chapter, The Album marks Jonas Brothers’ first body of work since 2019’s Platinum-Certified Happiness Begins, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 and spawned the GRAMMY® Award-nominated, 5x-Platinum, Billboard Hot 100 #1 smash hit “Sucker.” Pre-order/Pre-save The Album now HERE.
Executive produced by sonic visionary artist Jon Bellion [Justin Bieber, Maroon 5, Halsey], “Wings” revs up with shimmering keys, as it embraces late 70’s pop with thick bass, hummable synth runs, and heavenly harmonies. Wrapped up with lush guitar, a head-nodding beat, and no shortage of fiery falsetto, it culminates on the instantly chantable chorus “You are the wings I need to fly away.” The band began teasing the song on socials last month to online chatter and debuted it in full for the very first time last weekend at their “Jonas Brothers: Live in Las Vegas” residency.
The Jonas Brothers said, “‘Wings’ is the perfect start to this new chapter for us. Working with Jon pushed us to explore our artistry in a way we never have before. The song is a great first taste of that creative exploration and what’s to come with THE ALBUM.”
Jon Bellion chimed in, saying, “We wanted to wipe the palette clean and demolish every expectation and box the brothers have ever been put into out the gate. We pushed ourselves to launch this thing musically into space while grounding it in a sort of Americana / Laurel Canyon nostalgia. There was a time when structure and composition mattered not only loops and vibes, and we dove into that mind frame. We went so deep into the spirit and energy of the late 70’s, the mustaches and long hair method acting approach started to just become our actual reality. The brothers have a God given ability and talent that deserves this level of record making at this point, and I just wanted to honor how special they are with this music.”
Jonas Brothers notably wrote and recorded The Album with Bellion at the helm. Together, they unlocked the next level for the band, embracing formative influences and igniting their sound from every angle. They delivered an unpredictable, undeniable, and unstoppable record uplifted by their inimitable chemistry and endless creativity.
This isThe Album. This is Jonas Brothers in 2023.

ABOUT JONAS BROTHERS Jonas Brothers lean on an unbreakable familial bond to elevate pop music. Standing out as one of the most successful groups of the 21st century, New Jersey-born brothers—Nick Jonas, Joe Jonas, and Kevin Jonas—have sold north of 20 million albums and counting, garnered two GRAMMY® Award nominations, earned 25 Billboard Hot 100 hits, logged three consecutive #1 debuts on the Billboard 200, and generated billions of streams. Among many accolades, they’ve claimed a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and headlined legendary venues on both coasts, including Madison Square Garden in New York and The Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles. In 2019, they notably ignited the comeback of the decade with their Platinum-Certified Republic Records debut, Happiness Begins. It yielded the history-making, 5x-Platinum smash “Sucker,” which minted them as “the first group in the 21st century to debut at #1 on the Hot 100,”exploded as the “longest running #1 Pop Airplay Single of 2019,” and received a GRAMMY® Award nomination in the category of “Best Pop Duo/Group Performance.” Bowing at #1 on the Billboard 200, Happiness Begins impressively scored the “biggest sales week of 2019 at time of release” and housed the Double-Platinum “Only Human” and platinum “Cool.” The band supported the album with the worldwide “Happiness Begins Tour”—selling over 1.2 million tickets—and the Amazon Original documentaries Chasing Happiness and Happiness Continues. Along the way, the members simultaneously juggled prolific solo careers. However, nothing quite matches their union as Jonas Brothers, and it powers their 2023 full-length The Album, produced by Jon Bellion and introduced by the single “Wings.”
