Today at 12:30 at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Jason Horowitz will be giving a gallery talk about the current show, Strange Bodies. As a choice for a speaker to address this show, Jason makes perfect sense. His larger than life photos are definitely both strange and of the body: They're surreal, heightened, quasi-abstract fleshscapes that alienate the viewer from her or his own corporeal form, and they seem to recall everything from heroic abstract painting to forbidding, destroyed landscapes. Jason is represented by Andrea over at Curator's Office.
And tonight, Jayme has a cool show for you over at Civilian Art Projects: Paper Jam, featuring East Coast rock posters, silkscreened, xeroxed, and otherwise. Opening reception starts at 7:00 pm. 406 7th St NW, Chinatown.
