A little more about the museum:
They had an excellent display of art photography, on 3 floors. There were some works by Cindy Sherman, which were fascinating to see. A couple by these two guys who dress as dandies, then pose around town, or get rip roaring drunk. I can't remember their names, unfortunately. Then there were a couple floors on Jasper Johns, not really my thing. A floor of pop art, including a plushy, upside down city. I came into that room just as the sun was setting, and there was an entire wall of glass, so the upside down city had an orange right-side up city as a background. And a floor of what I want to call modern art, but that is an actual time period, isn't it? What I mean is art very recently created. A smashed car, spraypainted gray. Two screens of teens dancing selfconsciously, isolated in a partitioned room at a London club. A video of a naked woman hitting a punching bag. Bronzed lightbulbs.
My favorite was a fascinating laser disc called, I believe, Crematin 1, named after the muscle that causes the testicles to involuntarily retract in cold water. Women looking futuristic/retro, slowly dancing on a football field, forming geometric patterns mirrored by the actions of grapes in 2 Goodyear blimps above the action, manned by 50's style stewardesses. Fabulous.
Tomorrow is the GOONIES!!! Midnight showing in Uptown! I am so excited!
