"This is our globe."
—Michael Govan, on Andrea Gursky's Ocean (2010), a set of photos from satellite images recently bought for LACMA. In Carol Vogel's NYT column, Govan says he plans to create a space for the four 8 by 11-foot photos within LACMA's historic collection. He adds the interesting fact(?) that 19th-century museums often had globes as the "linchpin" of their galleries.
