Dan Perjovschi/What Happened to Us?  This was one of my favorite shows at the MOMA – my first after its new renovation.  The Romanian artist drew his biting cartoons directly on the big white interior gallery space on the MOMA mezzanine level just above the entry.

From the website:

Perjovschi’s work is -generally- handrawings over any given wall, a set of sketches with highly ironic and cutting views towards the contemporary -politics, society and culture-. Each of his drawings is a slap to the face to the first world –if we assume that his work deals manily with issues about a certain Center-Periphery tension.

  1. I agree that this was a fabulous show and the best in new york that summer. I just saw his work in Romania, and I continue to be amazed by him.
