We’re still flying by on September’s openings, but by the time the weekend rolls around, we’re gonna see some signs of new art life.

Over the years, she has consistently exhibited new work by Chinese and Japanese artists and pioneered Internet art at MoMA: in 2001 she produced the museum’s first website art commission, Tony Oursler’s Timestream, and in 1997 created Stir-Fry, a multimedia site mapping emerging media art in China. London has made a career of championing media and sound art, forms that continue to pose institutional challenges.
