Compared with the first phase of the New Museum’s inaugural exhibition, “Unmonumental,” part two, which opened two weeks ago, gets a bit more art up on the walls. Take the above untitled work by Kim Jones, an acrylic-and-ink-on-photo tableau. Art sort of becomes artist here, but we can’t help being reminded of that freaky YouTube video of the unfortunate Indonesian man turning into a tree. Watch at your own peril. Seriously. —Rachel WolffArtist Kim Jones Doodles on Self
