Must See

Don't miss the film installation at the Hirschhorn, The Cinema Effect: Illusion, Reality, and the Moving Image. I saw it today, plan to go look at it again tomorrow before the crowds arrive, and maybe a dozen more times before the show closes in May.


I've seen so many incredible shows since moving here, but I've never seen anything like this. Haunting, delightful, trippy, evocative, disorienting, even scary - we are an intensely creative species, we really are.

Today's photo is surrealistically sublime - I love it.

Hope you enjoy the film installation. Have fun!

Yes, Lettuce, this first part of the exhibit will be up till May 11. I'm SO JAZZED that you and Ched will be able to see this. It's the coolest exhibit I've seen in DC, at least since Wolfgang Laib's incredible installation there in 2001.

Hmmm...a trip to DC may be in order!

thanks for the head's up! sounds great. perhaps we can organize around this (and other things) and make an outing to see it may 2nd or 3rd when lettuce and I are in town? a plan? a plane? a play?

whatcha think?

Dennis says he will bring Steve with him.

Boycott China! Easter Peeps are made in the USAbut they are sent to China, unwrapped, to be wrapped there. It isn't an unusual practice.

Dennis is boycotting China, so he is buying a whole lot less stuff--since China is so involved in processing our ...stuff.

Dennis might not be able to get into the Hirschhorn--Dennis had a problem at the Guggenheim.

Hammer said...

Sounds right up my alley - thanks for the heads-up!

Reya Mellicker said...

Hammer you are going to LOVE it.

Dennis, we'll sneak you in.

Steve, please please please come?

Yes, Kim, yes ... Lettuce and I might have already seen the exhibit, but we can always return. I went to see it again today - it's haunting, fabulous. Really cool.
