Last week, we got a chance to preview Barbara Kruger's latest installation, "Belief+Doubt," with curator Melissa Ho at the Hirshhorn Museum in Washington, D.C. The installation has changed the entire floorplan of the museum, moving the store downstairs and converting the entire ground floor into space for Kruger's work. It's a site-specific piece, taking into account D.C. as a center of power and the museum's location on the National Mall.
"Belief+Doubt" opens August 20th, 2012, and will be up until 2014.
Enjoy a preview and accompanying commentary from Melissa Ho.
