Entries in swing (1)


Want me to push?

I am not sure how it's possible, but as soon as I got home from the breathtaking art installation "the event of a thread" by artist Ann Hamilton, every New Yorker I'm friends with on Facebook popped photos of the show on my timeline. (And we'd all somehow missed each other by minutes!)

If you haven't seen a billion photos on FB yet, here are a few of mine, taken today with my always-fun friend Kristin. I won't go into the details of the exhibition's concept -- hopefully the pics do it a little justice, and if not, you can read about it here. All I'll really say is that it was super smart and really inspiring. But there's only one more day left to see it in person, so if you're a city dweller, definitely get thee to the Park Avenue Armory on Sunday. Just be sure to buy tickets first -- it'll let you skip the long lines that snake way around the building. Because, hey, it's a bunch of swings moving a giant curtain up and down in a big room, y'all. Everybody wants in on that action.

Ann Hamilton's "the event of a thread," Park Avenue Armory, 643 Park Avenue between 66th and 67th Streets, through January 6.
