MOMA current exhibition: Isa Genzken
“Isa Genzken’s Retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art, organized by a royal flush of curators is one of the best major shows the museum has put on in a long time. Sculptors especially will find much of interest in Ms. Genzken’s approach to materials, and those curious about German postwar art have a lot to celebrate in the show, which puts on view many works never before seen for the first time in the U.S.” Via: Design Museum
Architecture and reading: University of Coimbra’s Library
