My Own Museum Afternoon

It’s 4.30am on bodyclock time, yet this looks like my desk in front of me…?

I have no idea where to start on the MOMA post. It’s New York’s Museum Of Modern Art and, thus, just the sort of place for me. I went in at 11 O’clock one morning, next thing I knew it was after 5… I could live there and never get bored.

It all starts with Pipilotti Rist’s installation of a huge room with videos playing on three walls with a giant sofa running around the centre of the room that you takes your shoes off and sit, lie or squat on for as long as you want. When I was there the centre part was full of playing toddlers 🙂

I spent the rest of the time being dazzled by Picasso, Monet, Magritte, Deschamps, Jasper Johns, Bacon, Gilbert & George, Warhol, Pollock…

My favourite museum I’ve ever been to, even above Tate Modern.

  1. Love the pics dude; I’d love to go to the MOMA some day.

    Question: 10th pic down- that wouldn’t be one of Lars Ulrich’s pieces of art that he auctioned off a few years ago, would it? he auctioned off a Basquiat too but I don’t know if that’s it.

    Weird Campbells soup thing is weird.

  2. I had to take the flash off my camera when I was taking a picture of the water lillies
    Did you see the Dali bust, I think,if I remember my MoMa, it was just before the water lillies.
    New York is just the biz Rick, I’ve been there 5 times and I never get sick of it:)
