Rudolf Stingel (Greg's pick)

Rudolf Stingel @ Whitney Museum
This show really blew me away. Grand and subtle. I appreciated the sparseness of the galleries- there was plenty of room to look at and contemplate each piece. The artist moves easily from abstraction (hazy paintings w/instructions on how to make them) to installation (a mirror covered floor reflected golden baroque patterning) to realistic painting (giant black and while photo-based images of the artist) and he takes us along for the ride.
