"A life told in stuff."  An exhibit by Song Dong called "Waste Not," a collection of over 10,000 objects hoarded by Dong's mother in China between 1950-2002.  Located in a part of the museum called The Curve--a space that literally curves as you walk through it--a brilliant idea as it gives you the illusion that it keeps going and going and going.
