    No permanent collection but that means everything is subject to rotation. A little more daring than other contemporary institutions. A scenic rooftop to boot.

    If you don't like contemporary art or "don't get it" there is still an awesome book selection in the first floor for you to learn so when you do come in, you can appreciate everything a little better.

    Are the works avant garde or just not so good. Best for donation based evenings in Thursday or simply save the $2 minimum for a happy hour instead.

    Check out Ann Hirsh's iPad app, Twelve. Her art, (like Playground) takes a richly nuanced digital native view of what most of us would immediately label pedophilloic predation. But she won't let you.

    Nothing on show before mid-oct... Poor coffee room with rude waiter... U get charged $4 to see a few pieces by artist Chris Burden, when you can see much more for free in London. New Museum indeed??
