One of many highlights from the New Museum's second triennial, The Ungovernables (through April 22), Danh Võ's “We The People” (2011), a series of Richard Serra-esque copper sculptures that are replicas of parts of the Statue of Liberty.
Carsten Höller's new exhibition, Experience (through January 15), opened last week at the New Museum. There’s plenty of fun work to be experienced (like the 102-foot-long slide in the background) and seen, like the creepy polyurethane sculpture “Orangutan” (2011) in the foreground.
This is one of a series of at least three sculpture that I spotted in the New Museum's very deep new show of artists from the former Communist bloc, Ostalgia (through September 25). The sculptures, all titled “This Is Not a Bomb” (2006), are by the young Russian artist David Ter-Oganyan.
