whitney, moma

okay, so i’m the last person not a tourist to catch this installation of the biennial and other landmark museum shows in town. But there were extenuating circumstances.
The biennial was pretty much what I have come to expect (there is a review by Peter Plagens in Art in America that captures my overall feelings while disagreeing about which were the worthwhile offerings). My favorite (and Plagens pan) was the Bruce High Quality Foundation ambulance/hearse. I’m also kind of sweet on Charles Ray’s flowers (also a Plagens pan).
MoMA’s exhibitions by Kentridge and Abramovic blew me away and gave me a much better rounded appreciation for the full body of work of these two. Perhaps I’ll get to elaborate soon……
