Hearsighted bash features DJ sets and dancing
This Saturday, R. Luke Dubois visits the Twin Cities to celebrate his art exhibit, "Hindsight is Always 20/20" with Hearsighted, a night of music and art. Dubois is not only an artist, but is also a musician and will be performing a DJ set that night. Other people slated to spin the tunes are DJ Etones and U of M students. There will be food and drink, art, and dancing throughout the night.
About two months ago "Hindsight is Always 20/20" opened at the Weisman Art Museum. Running through January 4, the exhibit features a series of prints and light boxes of presidential Snellan charts, aka those eye charts used to test vision at the doctor’s office or the DMV.
Taking transcripts of each president’s "State of the Union" addresses, Dubois then used key words to create a chart. Meaning, the more a word is used, the higher and larger its placement is on a president's chart. The result is a lexicon of buzz words, talking points, and history for each political era. Words like "terror, " "needy," and "Internet" rise to the top while other words lurk below in smaller print.
Hearsighted, at the Weisman Museum (333 East River Road, Minneapolis), costs $10 ($5 if you’re a museum member, student, or senior). Party hours are 8 p.m. to midnight. Call 612.625.4460 for more information or to RSVP.
