The expansive six story atrium at the Museum of Modern Art, which the NY Times notes has been a "space more suited to corporate functions than to art," has had its second floor taken over by a new Pipilotti Rist installation titled Pour Your Body Out.

The press release points out that the museum commissioned the artist to reinvent the space and reenvision its architecture. At 7,354 cubic meters, the result "is a lush, immersive landscape shaped by images, sound, and sculptural elements." It went on view this week, and will be in place through February 2nd, 2009...and the artist encourages visitors to experience the installation "by taking off their shoes, lying on the round sofa or on the carpeted floor, or singing or dancing around freely."
