Wang explores the uneasy involvement of politics in art in this show, which uses an odd confluence of historical referents as its starting point. These include First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy's role in securing a loan of the Mona Lisa for a U.S. exhibit, Nazi bigwig Hermann Göring's commission for a sculptural monument celebrating a successful breeding program for a near-extinct type of European bison and Isamu Noguchi's unrealized proposal for a Hiroshima memorial. Not the easiest case of connect-the-dots.
