I've heard people talk about colors floating, and light, and canvases expanding. It's all true. Rothko was so concerned with how his work was displayed. He preferred his work to be grouped together, which is how I've seen it before. But here, it's displayed in a room with other artists. I was drawn to it and I think the diversity helped.
Go see it! MoMa is free on Friday evenings thanks to another love of mine, Target.
