As much as I love art and anything that inspires creativity, I don’t always get a chance to take full advantage of all the great (and mostly free) museums here in DC. Right before the holidays I had one of the best Sunday fundays at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden. I had to catch one last glimpse of Ragnar Kjartansson’s solo exhibit before it ended.
Hailed by The New York Times as “one of the most celebrated performance artists anywhere,” the exhibit featured Kjartansson’s most celebrated works, including a live performance of Woman in E.
A single, sequin-clad woman strummed an E-minor chord and a rotating cast of musicians played the Woman. I’d never experienced anything like it before. It was captivating.
