MOMA in a rush for the plane home

I've just got back from a whistlestop trip to New York where I had to go for solely for a 12 hour meeting - grim! Before my flight home I got up extra early and ran to MOMA to check out the Cindy Sherman exhibition currently being held there. Aside from Cindy's work, I saw some other real gems, such as the Sanja Ivekovic exhibition, 'Sweet Violence' which kind of blew me away (in a way that, strangely, Cindy Sherman's exhibition didn't).

A real treat for me too was seeing the work (in the flesh) of so many amazing female artists under one roof, the work of Barbara Kruger, Kara Walker, Lisa Yuskavage, Ellen Gallagher, Diane Arbus, Nan Goldin, Louise Bourgeois, Sarah Lucas, Ana Medieta, Jenny Holzer, Lucy McKenzie, Paulina Olowska, Cady Noland, Diana Balton, Doris Salcedo, and Andrea Zittel.

Here's some crappy, blurry photos of some of that...

all sounds a bit dreamy to me (not the 12 hour meeting though!)
