WONDER at the Randwick Gallery

The Renwick Gallery in Washington DC was the first building designed expressly as an art museum. Following a two-year renovation it has recently re-opened, and to celebrate this a temporary exposition, WONDER, is on and I was fortunate enough to see it.

The space has been taken over by nine contemporary artists who have created site-specific installations, and the following are the order in which I saw them.

Welcome to the Renwick
