Gallery 27: left to right, Nam Jun Paik, Neo Rauch, Alex Katz

Staff are abuzz about Curator Theresa Papanikolas’ and Installation Designer Larry Maruya’s reinstallation of the Clare Boothe Luce Gallery (aka Gallery 27). The room is transformed, and there is all kinds of dialogue going on between the works, which run the whole of the 20th century. You get an art frisson just being in a room that has a Matisse and a Baldessari. And the Neo Rauch is back up. Mammoth. It will make you pause and puzzle.

De Chirico and Dali have a chat.

Giorgio de Chirico and Yves Tanguy have a surreal chat.
