Great to hear about this! We added a Jim Campbell to our collection four or five years ago, and then for several years only paintings and sculptures...but recently we've added a Leo Villareal piece and a two-channel video by Sophie Whettnall. We no longer care that we have no idea how we'll show some of these works...or think of them as being any different from our other acquisitions.
