If you don’t mind huge enormous mind-boggling crowds, check out the MoMa this weekend as they reopen their doors.
“A treasure chest of modernism, MoMA reopens its Manhattan home after undergoing the most extensive rebuilding and renovation project in its 75-year history. Architect Yoshio Taniguchi’s sleek design, which is highlighted in one of the opening exhibits, nearly doubles the capacity of the former building (featured here in the film series Made at MoMA, celebrating the institution’s cultural presence). Two other shows also focus on the museum’s expansion: Mark Dion displays artifacts excavated from the sculpture garden and demolished adjacent buildings, while Michael Wesely exhibits long photographic exposures of the project’s evolution. The icing on the cake is the reinstallation of the permanent collection, a magnificent feat in and of itself.”
