Jimmie Durham: Still Life with Spirit Xitle

Daily, Now - December 31, 2017
From: 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM

The Hirshhorn’s Sculpture Garden is set to display one of the strangest and most captivating pieces of art that you’ll see this year. Jimmie Durham’s Still Life with Spirit Xitle, which first debuted in Mexico City in 2007, is a reference to the eruption of the volcano Xitle 2,000 years ago, which destroyed the city of Cuicuilo. In a clash between the ancient and the modern, Durham used a crane to drop a nine-ton, red basalt boulder onto a 1992 Chrysler Spirit, and even painted a cartoon-like face on the boulder. Don’t miss this thought-provoking sculpture at one of DC’s most popular museums.
