There's so much more in this groundbreaking exhibit -- the mischievous, politically engaged conceptual work gathered in "Cryptic and Committed"; Julio Le Parc's mesmerizing light murals; Cildo Meireles's playful subversion of your senses in Eureka/Blindhotland (1970-1975); Berni's wonderfully hideous Sordidness -- than there is space here to consider it. It's not often that an exhibition makes you rethink what you know about art, but "Inverted Utopias" may just be that rare event.
