Well Hung | MoMA's Century of the Child

Thursday, August 02, 2012 1 comment

Well Hung | a sporadically updated look at my favorite artistic spectacles on the walls of (and inside glass boxes within) galleries and museums around the world. 

The Museum of Modern Art has tracked the confluence of modern design and modern childhood during a century that included an industrial revolution, two World Wars, a nuclear age, suburban sprawl, a space age and a technological boom. Century of the Child is up through mid-October. If you can't make it to see the 1933 red Skippy Racer or toy Graf Zeppelin in person, the online companion site will leave your mind whirling for hours - or inspire you to make charts with wild deco wallpaper patterns.


School House Rocks

P.S.1 opened up its fall exhibitions yesterday, which were quite cool, but regardless of what hangs on the walls, it's always so fun to pop over to Long Island City just go and see, well, the walls...and the old wooden floors and school house lamps and linoleum tiles...


This video installation, part of the 1969 exhibit, flashed over a record-covered floor by Christian Marclay.  (A very, very aggressive guard had yelled at me for iPhone photoing, so I had to attempt more stealthy techniques as we progressed through the museum.  With this one, I tried so hard to sneak the photo that I ran out before actually looking to see who made these films.  Art appreciation at its finest).  

MOS' Afterparty - sort of like running around under a Wild Thing...
