New Museum Yesterday

Yesterday we went to the New Museum, which everybody knows has moved to the Bowery in a building by SANAA, and its probably the best building New York has seen in a very long time. And judging by the amazingly ugly condos popping up (Richard Gluckman anybody?), it will be a while before another building like this comes along.


The chain link fence is great, makes everything look cheap and special at the same time,
and this goes on through the entire building.
starting from the top at the education center
down the semi scary japanese size stairs
everything is labeled according to sponsors, like they do in Japanese temples
(here the top floor gallery, by our very own Dakis + Lietta hurray!)
great piece but I don't remember who, and the guards were so camera-unfriendly
again great, again no memory
japanese size
Isa Genzken

great Act-Up Neon sign by Grand Fury I think,
and I never shut up anyway
