Although it is barely visible in the above photo, the center of the courtyard is occupied by what looks like a fountain that is currently not in use. An interesting aspect of it is that, while the fountain's overall structure is round, the central portion featured in the shot below is located off-center, more or less as shown in the photo.
And as long as I am describing its overall appearance, here is a shot of a portion of the museum's ceiling. I like the simplicity of this shot.
The interior of the museum is on three levels. One of the major exhibits in the lower level is by Barbara Kruger with the title "Belief and Doubt," for evident reasons. Here are a few shots of that exhibit.
This entire saying (which I did not have a lens wide-angled enough to capture was "Belief + Doubt + Sanity."
Another impressive piece of art in the lower level was one by Ron Mueck formally untitled but informally titled "Big Man," again for evident reasons. This was a full-sized, extremely lifelike representation of very heavy-set nude man.
Fortunately for any viewer, I did not include any full-frontal shots. Here is a close-up of his face. The detail is stunning.
The second level of the museum is currently dedicated to a special exhibit by Ai Weiwei, which I am including in a separate post. The third level primarily houses the museum's permanent collection, which is very good. Here is one of the sculptures from the collection.
Unfortunately, by the time we got to the third level our art museum tolerance was reaching its 24-hour limit, so we didn't spend as much time there as we could have. We will just have to return another time and focus on that portion of the museum.
