Hans Haacke has an important show now at the Paula Cooper Gallery. Besides showing his Photographic Notes, documenta 2, 1959 series and Sol Goldman and Alex DiLorenzo Manhattan Real Estate Holdings project, the main space is occupied by Wide White Flow (1967), a work belonging to the series that explores the natural processes of wind, electricity and condensation. It is strong yet peaceful, and reminds me of standing on the mid-avenue pedestrian stop facing the on-coming traffic of 9th Ave. It should be experienced.
