December 19, 2013

Now, when I think of New York, I think of dark figures against the light.

Feeling unlagged enough at last to post some more of my New York photos. These ones are of rust found around Manhattan and Brooklyn. (And Queens)

MOMA in Queens: PS1

November 1, 2013

antheaboesenberg

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?

More Subway.

I could photograph people in the subway for weeks and not become bored.

Guggenheim.

October 30, 2013

Does the architecture upstage the art? The exhibition of Christopher Wools work at the Guggenheim is perfectly suited to the space: large monochromatic canvases and works on paper and panels of text displayed on all levels of the rotunda. But for me, the building is the star. What do you think?
