The revolving hotel room that's part of theanyspacewhatever exhibit at the Guggenheim isn't the only noteworthy work on view at the moment; through January the museum is hosting a mid-career survey of Catherine Opie, who's known for her striking photographs of diverse subjects ranging from Minnesota ice fishers to the west coast L.G.B.T. community.
Her photographs of the ice houses were made in a particularly painstaking manner, with Opie braving inclement weather with a field camera loaded with 8 x 10-inch film. According to the Guggenheim website, "The extended set-up time, along with the period spent waiting for the proper conditions to align, lends these images a feeling of duration that echoes the hours spent waiting by the photographs’ subjects."
Tomorrow you can roam the entire museum at the Guggenheim's popular Art After Dark: First Fridays party, from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. This month's dance party is hosted by Baltimore duo Devlin & Darko (Spank Rock). It's $25 cash only at the door (get on line early!), and please remember to be respectful of the hotel guests who may be trying to sleep.
