I finally checked out the New Museum yesterday.
I agree with Ms. Huxtable that the design of the building is pleasing...
...but I wasn't bowled over by the "Unmonumental" exhibit, basically lots of ho-hum, bulky sculptural assemblages and collages.
(No photos of these--they wouldna lemme!)
I did, however, really like the work of Nancy Spero, a new discovery for me, so it was a fruitful visit.
After that, I saw The Savages, a small, sad, likable wisp of a movie.
I guess this is the weekend of underwhelming art.
Have a good one!
