Carsten Holler: Experience

Art exhibit meets futuristic playground.

When was the last time you attended an art exhibit where you could float in a sensory-deprivation tank, ride a shiny mirrored carousel and whiz down a pneumatic tube slide that cuts through each floor of the gallery? Oh, never? Then you may want to make a special trip to New York’s New Museum, which will be home to the dizzying “Carsten Höller: Experience” until Jan. 15. Or just marvel at the exhibit’s Tumblr and slide installation videos instead.
