I bought this book about NYC art scene to find out all the museums and galleries I should go to. I started with the biggest and the nearest one for me here in Midtown - The Museum of Modern Art
I've always dreamt about going to go the MoMA so I was pretty amazed by the fact that it's really happening.
/One: Number 31. 1950. Jackson Pollock. Abstract expressionism/
/Mirror Stratum, (American, 1938-1973)/
/The Absolutely Naked Fragrance. 1967. John McCracken. minimalism/in the foreground
/Untitled. Man Ray. 1930/
In between visiting the exhibitions I sat down in their Terrace cafe and had a delicious cauliflower and blue cheese tart with fresh figs.
/From their Architecture and Design department I enjoyed the 20's the most/
There was also a installation by Rirkrit Tiravanija in the middle of the musem. He had transfered the contents of the gallery's back office to the display place and hot Thai curry with rice was cooked and served there for free. Visitors were invited to come, sit down and have a curry.
In the end I obviously visited the museum's book and design store and left with a handful of prints and postcards.
