In this video, on MoMA’s first floor by the escalators, a person is walking faster than an ice-cutting ship. It’s ten minutes of calm and a little suspense.

Wolfgang Laib’s “Pollen From Hazelnut” is a huge rectangle of pollen that was meticulously sifted onto a platform in MoMA’s second floor atrium. From a distance it appears slightly convex and resembles a pincushion, or a minimalist painting too large to hang. Up close, the yellow of the pollen is compelling but not overwhelming – I’m glad I saw it but I haven’t advised friends to rush over. The pollen’s on view until March 11.
Nearly closing time at MoMA, and people are still in line to see Christian Marclay’s “The Clock.” The “cinematic tour de force” has a cult following, and predictable lines. In the second floor atrium, Philip Worthington’s “Shadow Monsters” provides entertainment. The wall projections are interesting, though I had expected something else, after seeing pictures at moma.org.
Be brave; go out and get some culture and pretend that the city’s not packed with holiday visitors.
