On View in New York

Color Chart is an interesting exhibition on MOMA that covers the theoretical and aesthetic views on color in the works of artists from 1950 to today. The exhibition touches on the irony of color as an industrial readymade production in the hands of contemporary artists. The exhibition is on through May 12, 2008. You can see the online exhibition of the Color Chart, which displays some selected works from the exhibition, here.

Also a very tempting exhibition will be up on MOMA on Olafur Eliasson, a Danish artist famous for his atmospheric-landscape installations. Take Your Time will be on view from April 20 – June 30, 2008. Last fall I saw this exhibiting on SFMOMA (San Francisco Museum of Modern Art), and as its title truly suggests: take your time; don’t rush through it and then you will enjoy the installations and its surroundings.

And on MET: I am planing to go to Gustave Courbet’s exhibition. More than his paintings I like to see some 19th-century photographs that are on view in this exhibition. They are related to Curbet’s paintings and I can not wait to see the ones related to his nude works; Around 1860's Courbet painted a series of nude and erotic works that caused many controversies back then, that's why I like to see the photos.

Olafur Eliasson
