Best news I've heard in a while -- via blogging guitarist Mike Bagetta -- Jeff Wall is coming to MoMA. Well, actually, I have no idea if the dude himself will make the trip, but his thoroughly awesome oversize lightbox photographs will. I'm pretty sure my fellow Pulseketeers are sick of hearing me talk up Jeff Wall by now, but he's pretty much my favorite photographer ever, and my last two Pulse compositions have been based on his work (this one and this one, for those keeping track). I've seen individual Wall pieces at the Tate Modern and other galleries, and I've got a book of his stuff, but Marvin had it right -- ain't nothing like the real thing baby, especially when it comes to work on this scale. The Wall exhibit opens February 25 and runs until May 14.
UPDATE: The NYT's Roberta Smith on the Wall retrospective.
