CONTRIBUTORS "Which exhibition are you most looking forward to this summer?" Aric Chen, Cultured's contributing editor, is a curator and writer specializing in design and architecture. Formerly the creative director of Beijing Design Week, Chen is the new curator of design and architecture for M+, the new museum for visual culture soon to be built in Hong Kong. His writing has appeared publications including The New York Times, Wallpaper*, Architectural Record, Pin-Up and Harvard Design Magazine. "Le Corbusier: An Atlas of Modern Landscapes, the first major show on LeCorbusier ever mounted at MoMA. MoMA, of all places, has never done a show on Le Corbusier?!" 28 CULTURED Brooklyn-based Janelle Zara got her start as design editor Wendy Goodman's intern at New York Magazine. Zara currently serves as the senior architecture and design writer at Blouin Artinfo. "This summer, you'll find me at the Guggenheim ogling the new James Turrell installation. His work is so immersive, and despite their bright colors, there's something very calming about those lights." Jonathan Griffin is a freelance writer, critic, editor and curator. Born and raised in London, he now lives in Los Angeles. He is a contributing editor of Frieze magazine, and has also written for publications including Art Review, The Financial Times, Wallpaper*, Flash Art, Tank, The Art Newspaper and The World of Interiors. "Aside from all the hullaballoo around the Venice Biennale (which promises to be better than any in recent memory), I'm looking forward to the Hammer Museum's exhibition of work by Forrest Bess. There are many extraordinary things about Bess, but perhaps the strangest is that it has taken us this long to recognize his remarkable artistic contribution, 35 years after his death." Raul Barreneche, a New York-based architectural designer and journalist, is the author of 10 books on architecture and design, most recently "The Tropical Modern House," published by Rizzoli in 2011. A former contributing editor to Metropolitan Home, he is a contributing editor to Travel + Leisure and Interior Design and has written extensively for major publications including Architectural Digest, ELLE D├ęcor, Departures, Town & Country, Martha Stewart Living, and The New York Times. He holds a professional architecture degree from Carnegie Mellon University. "I'm really looking forward to seeing the London-based collective rAndom International's Rain Room at MoMA. I'm always up for a multi-sensory, multi-media installation with a bit of the unexpected. "
