Art fuses with urbanity in an aesthetically pure redesign of the Modern [New York Times]
The Museum of Modern Art is back. And just in time. The city has grown up since the Modern shut its doors to build its new home two and a half years ago. The hole left by the twin towers. A war in Iraq. A polarised electorate. Our culture is in a crisis as critical as any since the cold war period when Modernism reached its final, exuberant bloom.
