I got a sneak peek of this exhibition. It is wonderful and unified in its approach of challenging the way works interact with a gallery space. Works are site specific, bridging painting and sculpture, incorporating the architecture of the building, and making us look up, walk over, peak around, and question our typical viewing experience. Definitely worth a visit.
