So, here we are, 2009 space monkeys and flying cars and all. Its an exciting yet anxious year for me - finishing school and re-entering the working world at a time when people are suggesting our economy is tanking more then it ever has in my lifetime. So what do we do? celebrate? turn off the TV try to read the news a little less and hope Obama can jump start this economy with a full on Keynesian / New New Deal Plan.
On the bright side - there are no lines for bread and institutions like The Guggenheim are still very much alive and kicking out interesting events like the tomorrows-
On the occasion of the exhibition theanyspacewhatever, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum will present a 24-hour event concentrating on the concept of time in its myriad philosophical, psychological, biological, sociological, poetic, aesthetic, and economic manifestations. Constituting a multi-disciplinary approach to the subject, the program will bring together artists, architects, scientists, philosophers, historians, engineers, filmmakers, musicians, and other cultural producers.
