One of the first thing anyone sees when they walk into the back room of the gallery are these two totems — the one on the left by Paul Evans, a signed and dated single commission from 1972, and the one on the right by Alexandre Noll, from 1945. The building has a freight elevator, thankfully, though when I joke about it, gallery manager Lindsay Johnson pipes up that “we do have some interesting adventures on the stairs with things that don’t fit inside it.”
