Things to do
+ At the end of the month, 28 February, the exhibition Design for the Other 90% from the Cooper Hewitt, National Design Museum will be closing at the Mercy Corps Action Center in Portland Oregon. In Oregon? Hurry over this week. The exhibition will reopen in April at the National Geographic Museum in D.C.
+ In NY? Perhaps you’d like to check out the art exhibition, Size DOES Matter, curated by Shaquille O’Neal (yeah, that one). Is this serious? I think so. /via this interview of Shaq from New York Magazine
(Were you able to see ‘Big!’ at the National Archives in D.C. before it closed? A very small, deliberate, interesting exhibition. Incidentally, it included a Shaq shoe. Here’s the review from the NY Times.)
+ I mentioned in this previous post the Chris Jordan show at the Museum of Science in Boston. If you’d rather stay at home you can have a look at his work via The Age of Impossible Numbers, a slideshow from Seed Magazine.
Inspiration (German museums edition)
+ „und keiner hat für uns kaddisch gesagt“—“and no one has said Kaddish for us”—an exhibition about the deportation of Jews from Frankfurt 1941-1945, at the Jüdisches Museum (the Jewish Museum) of Frankfurt.
+ The seven exhibition areas of the BMW Museum in Munich…mind-bogglingly beautiful. Flickr set one and two (‘two’ for its short videos).
