While it's surprising to see that there weren't any bicycles in the collection there were some related supplies... Perhaps the bicycles of a Beijing household are too precious to give up?

As a former gallery owner and an artist-against-the-art-world, I have some elaborate opinions on installations like this which would probably bore you all - so let's stick to how the public received it. Here are the comments I overheard as I walked around the exhibition:
"I don't know why, but this is special."
"I think the categorization helps too."
"I guess if you took everything out of our house..."
"The house must have been bigger than I thought."
"It's an art show."
"I feel like I've gotten my $5 worth already."
"That was a good MOMA-run."
