I am so impressed by the innovative and interactive offerings of 21st Century: Art in the First Decade, at the Gallery of Modern Art in Brisbane. From Neuenschwander's wall of wish covered ribbons, Wish your Wishto Hollers spiral shaped slides, dramatically twisting between the third and ground floor, the work is inviting, humorous and evocative. 

My favorite was certainly Celeste Boursier-Mougenot's From here to ear (v.13), consisting of a gallery space hung with ubiquitous wire coat hangers, while finches shared the constructed environment. It was strangely beautiful and calming. Experiencing the installation is really a must. Words fail to adequately describe the encounter.

If you are in Brisbane any time before the 26th April 2011, I urge you to visit. I found it quite easy to loose myself for a few hours, wandering around the gallery space and enjoyed watching Cohen interacting with the art work.
