(May 12-April 2013) Preeminent Perspectives
A monumental installation by one of Asia’s preeminent artists is showing at the Mall’s Sackler Gallery beginning Saturday. Ai Weiwei’s Fragments looks like a randomly assembled collection of ironwood, but upon closer inspection you’ll find a delicate structure outlining the borders of China.
(May 10) A spiritual experience
Acclaimed British rockers Spiritualized play Northwest Washington’s 9:30 Club tonight. The band mixes old and new with gospel, blues, and spacey rock sounds.
