The SoHo outpost of the Goog is for the more experimental and modern art of
the collection. Much of the art on display has a technological edge to it,
whether it be through the use of video and computers to motors and LCD
panels. Right now, (and for the next 5 months) the museum is showing 5000
years of Chinese Art. Despite this small difference from their usual shows,
the Goog SoHo is a fun place to spend the afternoon. A more complete review
will be given once the Chinese show is down. Also, they have a killer gift
shop. Loads of books on modern art and oodles of tschokes of all makes and
