Carol Vogel tells how the MoMA has had to re-orient its ground-breaking retrospective of Sigmar Polke to accommodate the artist’s huge work:
a major retrospective is to open on April 19, 2014, and run through Aug. 2 before traveling to the Tate Modern in London and the Ludwig Museum in Cologne. […]
Because of the size of the show and the monumentality of some of the works, it will be installed in the museum’s second-floor galleries rather than on the sixth floor, which is normally used for special exhibitions.
“Some of the paintings are so big, they can only fit on the second floor,” Ms. Halbreich said. “This is one of the largest shows MoMA has ever done.”
