Black Light

As I scrutinized a Willem de Kooning painting last weekend, a stranger inside the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art couldn't resist trotting out that inevitable line. "I could do that!" she whispered conspiratorially. An installation in the next gallery had me murmuring an entirely different refrain. "I want to do that," I told myself. Where Else, by Julia Oschatz, is just plain cool. Although this crass confession will horrify the artist and museum curator, the dark, shadowy and creepy exhibit looks like the world's freakiest dorm room. The installation runs through July 6.
