A Day Like Any Other Invites Tender Participation at the New Museum

Wishes on ribbon from "I Wish Your Wish" at the New Museum

I stopped by the New Museum for a preview of it’s new show, “Rivane Neuenschwander: A Day Like Any Other” yesterday and am still wearing a ‘wish ribbon’ around my wrist to prove it.  The show is a mid-career survey of the work of Brazilian artist Rivane Neuenschwander. The lobby gallery holds her irresistible installation, “I Wish Your Wish,” which is where I spent most of my time, reading over 60 different (often very moving) wishes printed on colorful ribbon hanging from the walls.
