As one of the most influential artists of our generation, McGee was recently asked to reinstall a work of his at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art for their 75th Anniversary retrospective.

 

What ended up happening was an installation that not only incorporated the original work created in 1996 but also samples of new work created right before the installation.

 

In this piece The Creative Lives talks with Barry about the preservation of impermanent art and how reinvention keeps him excited.
