Carsten Höller Slide at the New Museum

Gone are the days when installing an art exhibition typically involved hanging paintings, the biggest safety hazard of which involved balancing on top of a wobbly wooden ladder to reach the only remaining spot, high on the walls of The Salon. These days, a curator may regularly have to call for a hard-hat and a JCB when putting a show together.

This piece goes from floor to floor, bringing visitors by slide, instead of by stair or escalator.
