Who says you’re too old to join the kids on the playground? Certainly not artist Ann Hamilton. Taking inspiration from her own childhood memories, Hamilton has created the Event of a Thread, a field of swings connected to a massive white sheet (her interpretation of the sky) that will move depending on how how fast or slow everyone is swinging. For a Lynchian twist to this playland, there will be readers addressing caged pigeons and a lone writer responding to the “weather of the room” on paper. The best time of day to go might be around 6:30, when a singer will serenade the birds as they are released into the room. (Don’t worry, they’re trained.)
Mondays-Sundays, 11 a.m. Starts: Dec. 7. Continues through Jan. 6, 2012
