the white cube explodes (kind of)

It’s finally here!

First up is a Tony Oursler exhibit…this is definitely a step into another dimension of museum-going.

I think it is interesting that there was a need to develop a virtual “bricks and mortar” version of the museum in the form of Filippo Innocenti’s stark white towers that look like elongated artichokes or the stamens of a prehistoric lily…interesting that the pretense of actually “housing” something tangible has to be played out here. Is this a nod at Second Life- type imagined realities? In other words, does the structure somehow make the museum and its artwork more credible than it would otherwise? More thoughts on this to come as I spend some more time on the site.
