Disappearing Act: Rosemarie Trockel at the New Museum

It’s not very often that one can report that a triptych by an orangutan isn’t the best thing in a show, but it’s not very often that one has the opportunity to take stock of Rosemarie Trockel’s art.

The triptych is a brushy abstraction by a simian named Tilda, and it is hanging on the second floor of the New Museum, where the major exhibition Rosemarie Trockel: A Cosmos is ranging across three stories of gallery space.
