Four years later, art historian James Meyer finds that the "Wagner effect" is alive and well, having reached a kind of double apotheosis in Olafur Eliasson's Weather Project at Tate Modern and in the sublime vistas of Dia:Beacon. Tracing this tendency from the somatically scaled canvases of Abstract Expressionism through the present day—and elucidating the role that "unrelenting global museological competition" plays in its development—Meyer sheds critical light on our Brobdingnagian moment.
