DC Art Therapy: Hirshhorn, Phillips, Renwick, Plus

Leave a comment

The best layover ever is just about right. We made plenty of time for art on Wednesday. First stop after breakfast was the Hirshhorn. This museum is really going places. The new director has it popping. If you already did that once or twice and you have not been under the new regime, go.

The color wheel is the first use of the second floor circle that has perfect sensibility.

Downstairs had some cool stuff too.

 

 

 

The highlight of this Hirshhorn visit was the fact that Manifesto was playing. I saw this in Stuttgart in 2017 and was utterly blown away. This is a must see video installation, even if you don’t do video art (generally speaking, I don’t).

 

 

Here is the official trailer. Absolutely stunning masterpiece.

 

 

 

I now love Cate Blanchett. Watching her work in such a close stunning cinematic set of visuals is life changing.

 

After lunch, which may or may not have included a bottle of Gigondas, we headed to the Phillips.

 

Finally, parking karma still intact, we headed to the Renwick. Sadly, Jacob missed it.

 

 

 

 

Three museums was not enough to satisfy the art goddess. Fortunately, Richard rode to the rescue. His collection is world class.
