MOMA in Queens: PS1

Today we travelled to Queens, only a couple of stops on the subway. We visited the second MOMA gallery, PS1, also called the Institute of Contemporary Art. At the moment there’s a large survey exhibition of Mike Kelleys work. Kelley worked in a diverse range of media, including drawing on paper, sculpture, performance, music, video, photography and painting.

This is the city of Kandor, from the planet Krypton, preserved at a fraction of its normal size in a bottle. (Yes, the planet Superman comes from….)

The building is a very old rambling school building, and has developed a lovely patina of age.

The old boiler in the basement had been partly coated in gold leaf as an installation by the artist Saul Melman. It was quite beautiful.

Apparently there is a second Guggenheim, too. Maybe tomorrow?
