The Smithsonian Hirshhorn Museum’s new exhibition, Suprasensorial: Experiments in Light, Color and Space, opened yesterday. The exhibit highlights the Latin American pioneers of the Light and Space movement. If you’re unfamiliar with this art movement, its artists have a fascination with optical illusions, and as you know, everybody loves optical illusions.
Georgetown Program Board is screening Academy Award Best Picture nominee Moneyball at 7:30 p.m. and 10 p.m in the ICC Auditorium. I’ve heard rumors that Brad Pitt will be in attendance to campaign for the film, but like I said, it’s just a rumor.
The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee kicks off its second week with an 8 p.m. showing in Poulton Hall. Critics lauded the acting but did not appreciate the infantile words the contestants were challenged to spell. Apparently, our reliance on spell check has taken the edge off the spelling bee.
Watch the Yale School of Music perform works by Debussy, Mendelsohn, and Bartók at the Kennedy Center Millennium Stage. The 6 p.m. performance is free, because honestly, who would pay to see the Yale School of Music?
Check out the Black Movements Dance Theatre, a combination of student and professional guest performers, as they take viewers through a night of contemporary dance in their new production, Conversations. The event is on Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m. in Gonda Theatre (Davis Performing Arts Center).
Loosen up with some dubstep at the 9:30 Club. Starting at 10 p.m., Dub Nation is a forum for all of D.C.’s worst dubstep musicians. But this is a good thing, because the best dubstep is the worst dubstep, and worst dubstep is the best dubstep.
Do not miss the opportunity to see Disney’s Phineas and Ferb: The Best LIVE Tour Ever! Relive your favorite childhood show in the George Mason University Patriot Center at 7 p.m. Actually, this show probably started when you were 17, so you have no business attending.
The Oscars kick off at 7 p.m., hosted by Billy Crystal, who was cryogenically frozen after his last time hosting, so his delivery should be in tip-top shape.
It’s getting hot in here
