In the decade since its founding, the International Contemporary Ensemble has become essential. The flexible collective of 33 musicians is likely the most accomplished new music group in New York, and it makes a significant contribution toward keeping the city musically cosmopolitan, regularly providing compelling performances of meaningful and dauntingly difficult new music from afar. One of the most memorable concerts of recent work I've heard in the last half-year, for instance, was ICE's program devoted to the feisty, remarkable Austrian composer Olga Neuwirth at Columbia University in December.

A painting by Barnett Newman set an artist record at auction on Tuesday, selling for $43.8 million in New York. Sotheby's had expected "Onement VI," an abstract work in dark blue, to go for between $30 million and $40 million. The sale was part of a larger auction of contemporary art that brought in a total of $293.6 million, on the low end of expectations. The sale included an auction record for Gerhard Richter. The artist's photo-painting "Domplatz, Mailand" brought in $37.1 million. A Yves Klein piece, "Untitled Blue Sponge Sculpture," sold for $22 million.

If Hollywood is a dream factory, then it is every screenwriter's fantasy to sell a script--and actually get it made. But screenwriters Gary Goldman and David Weinstein never dreamed they'd have such problems getting screen credit for "Big Trouble in Little China," a mystical, kung-fu adventure film that stars Kurt Russell and arrives Wednesday from 20th Century Fox. After Fox optioned their script two summers ago, they figured their struggle was over. But. . . .

We were pleased that "The Bigger One" refers to our effort to limit earthquake damage to the archaic Greek kouros and other sculptures. But in your fictional scenario, at the Getty Museum "almost all is in ruin." In 1984, a thorough study of the building and site by the seismic engineers Lindvall, Richter and Assoc. concluded that a quake like the one described would cause no significant structural damage. Some reinforcements of the garage were in order, and these have been completed.

Thousands of rescue workers, guided by piercing cries of "help," clawed today through collapsed buildings and fed trapped survivors through tubes in the rubble of a devastating earthquake that officials said killed at least 760 people. New tremors shook central Mexico today, and radio stations broadcast appeals every few minutes for surgical instruments, blood, medical supplies, food and picks and shovels to dig through rubble.

After a nine-year absence, Andy Richter returns to work with talk show host Conan O'Brien, when O'Brien takes over "The Tonight Show" on Monday night. In the interval, Richter did at least two shows on Fox and one on NBC and a bunch of other stuff. -- Where are you? I'm in my office in . . . I almost said Rockefeller Center! At Universal. I think a lot of people are surprised to find out I'm not on the Conan show anymore.

"Buckaroo Banzai" director W. D. Richter is trying to get a "Banzai"-type show on ABC, and he's pleading with the 5,000-plus Blue Blaze Irregulars to come to the rescue. Seems ABC wanted a series--even though the 20th Century Fox release failed commercially--but there were rights complications. So Richter and Earl Mac Rauch (who wrote the movie) came up with "Heroes in Trouble," a pilot that Mac Rauch is writing. "It's a nervy series.

Wednesday night's super-sized episode of "Top Chef" let viewers and the contestants have a little fun on an Alaskan cruise. The remaining chefs packed their bags -- Stefan Richter packed what he calls his party pants -- and they boarded a cruise ship with chef Curtis Stone as a guest judge. The chefs were asked to make 200 portions of a dish featuring iceberg lettuce for a party for the Quickfire Challenge. Sheldon Simeon won with yet another Asian dish. This time he did a Vietnamese lettuce wrap with pork and shrimp and pickled lettuce cores.

WASHINGTON - For a hundred years, artists have been using and abusing newspapers as a vital part of their works. Pungent examples include the Spanish painter Salvador Dali creating an absurd newspaper about himself, the German-born Swiss artist Dieter Roth making a sausage, complete with gelatin and spices, out of copies of the British tabloid Daily Mirror and the American Jim Hodges coating a Jordanian newspaper entirely in 24 karat gold. Little attention has been paid to this phenomenon by the world's museums in the past.

A painting by German artist Gerhard Richter has broken the record for the most paid at auction for a work by a living artist, according to Sotheby's. The work, titled "Abstaktes Bild" (804-9), sold for 21.3 million pounds ($34.2 million) on Friday in London. Sotheby's said the 1994 painting belonged to guitarist Eric Clapton and was sold to an anonymous buyer. The auction house had estimated the painting between 9 million to 12 million pounds.   The all-time top record-holder for a painting at auction was set last year with Cezanne's "The Card Players," which sold for more than $250 million.

Goaltender Mike Richter is back in form and the New York Rangers are back on track. Richter, shaping up after a sluggish start, turned in his second successive sparkling performance to lead the New York Rangers to a 2-1 victory over the St. Louis Blues Friday night at New York. "Mike played exceptionally well," Ranger center Wayne Gretzky said. "When he's on his game, he's as good as any goaltender in hockey. He's been a big part of our three wins."

"Gerhard Richter Painting"is a mesmerizing look behind the curtain at a magician at work, a man who creates his enchantments not with a deck of cards or puffs of smoke but rather paint, brushes, canvas and a giant squeegee. Now 80 years old, the German painter is considered one of the world's greatest living artists, still creating dazzling work in his studio in Cologne. Famously publicity-shy, he made a 2007 short with filmmaker Corinna Belz called "Gerhard Richter's Window," an experience that went so well that he agreed to participate in this remarkable feature-length project.

It isn't Shannon Sharpe striking an Incredible Hulk pose after scoring a touchdown. Not Marshall Faulk picking up an exhausted teammate and dragging him to the line of scrimmage to keep a two-minute drill going. Not Deion Sanders high-stepping into the end zone, or Richard Dent crushing another quarterback. The true human highlight film in this Pro Football Hall of Fame class is 94-year-old Ed Sabol, the onetime overcoat salesman who shaped the NFL as we know it. Sabol, who founded NFL Films and forever changed the way the world watches football, will complete his decades-overdue journey to Canton on Saturday, when he'll be inducted with a class that includes Sharpe, Faulk, Sanders, Dent, Chris Hanburger and the late Les Richter.
