For Denny the MoMA confirmation represents the high point of a number of significant purchases into important collections including Channel document into the Rubell Family collection in Miami. Last month his exhibition New management at Portikus in Frankfurt was also purchased by a private collector.
Denny received news of the MoMA confirmation as he was setting up his exhibition The personal effects of Kim Dotcom at Wellington’s Adam Art Gallery. The scale of the confiscations of Dotcom’s possessions by the New Zealand police is revealing. Anyone looking at the ambition and complexity of this show will get a great insight into why Denny was the object of desire for the famed New York museum.
