Because Minimal is now Classical we should pixelate the idea of reductive purity.

Orchestrating a medley of works from key contemporary visionaires such as Gerhard Richter, Pierre Huyghe, Lars Laumann, Artur Zmijewski, Lawrence Weiner , Johanna's Billing, Gabriel Orozco, Thomas Struth, Pawel Althamer,Guido Van der Werve, Olivier Babin, Maurizio Cattelan, William Kentridge and Tacita Dean "As Long As It Lasts" lingers as a seminal assemblage by the brilliant curator Tom Eccles. By juxtaposing this body of artists around a inherently spiritual theme the diverse nature of their aesthetic coalesced in a way that was a remarkable statement of visual grace .

When the freshly expanded MOMA reopened I took out a membership for the sole purpose of slumming through that pristine new space. I spent virtually an entire summer on the second floor contemporary gallery stalking the Richters and Gursky's and that massive black and white Tyombly. And then ADD set in. It felt like the subsequent exhibits (except for the Doug Aitken "Sleepwalkers" extravaganza, which ironically didn't require you to ENTER the museum) have been not so compelling. Well Spring 08 sees MOMA sizzling with two must see shows. There is the greatly anticipated Olafur Eliasson retrospective, "Take Your Time" which threatens to re-orient even the way you physically experience the space of the museum. And there is the current hit "Color Chart: Reinventing Color, 1950 To Today."
