Bye Bye Rainbow

15 Nov

The New Museum is a few blocks from my apartment and ever since I’ve been living in New York the building’s facade has boasted Ugo Rondinone’s luminous and happy rainbow spelling out the enthusiastic words “Hell, Yes!”

Today I was saddened to see that this sculpture was replaced by a 30-foot steel and lacquer Rose sculpture by Isa Genzken (worth a million dollars!). Change is good though, I guess. And I have always had a fondness for over-sized objects… Maybe I can learn to love it.

    Yes, but you have a bigger love for very-under-sized objects. How do you negotiate the two and still stay the same size?

    GOOD QUESTION! But I’m afraid I don’t have an answer.
