    The enfants terribles have grown up. First, Pierre Huyghe was chosen earlier this year to inaugurate the MAMVP’s newly renovated contemporary exhibition space. Now it is Cerith Wyn Evans’s turn to shine. The atmosphere should be electric: Twenty-five works from the past decade—including seventeen lightbulb chandeliers, three “dreamachine” installations, a slide projection, and mirrored and neon pieces—will illuminate the galleries in a show titled “. . . in which something happens all over again for the very first time.” Let’s just hope that the concurrent Dan Flavin show doesn’t absorb all the attention (and the power supply). Otherwise the only thing that will happen all over again is visual fatigue.
