Pipolotti Rist @ The New Museum
The hottest show in New York (if you believe social media) is Pipolotti Rist: Pixel Forest at The New Museum. This Museum is appropriately named "New" as it typically exhibits "the new" (living artists) versus the more established museums. The New Museum, designed by Tokyo-based architects Kazuyo Sejima and Ryue Nishizawa/SANAA in 2007, is architecturally significant and comports with the museum's mission and location. The space lends itself to cutting-edge art, and as such, the Rist show is housed in the perfect location! Rist explores the boundaries and interplay between organic objects, nature and technology. It is visually stunning (very Insta-worthy) and provides an interactive experience which encourages visitors to spend precious time with the work (they even provide beds and pillows!).
