After Nature

July 17th – September 21st

New Museum

This is my favorite show curated at the New Museum so far. Each of the floors it’s shown on was filled with something that made me say, “cool” . I didn’t get a chance to make sure, but I do believe there was a ” live person” installation … either that or some weird lady was laying on the floor rolling around and looking crazy, which either way is pretty effective. The exhibit brought together a conglomerate of works by artists that weaved together perfectly in creating a sense of trauma. I was especially captivated by the work of Maurizio Cattelan, Allora and Calzadilla, Pawet Althamer, and Roger Ballen.

They also have a little online exhibit as well: check it out here.
