on the way to DCA, we stopped at the hirshhorn (a pile of nested toruses inside a big cylinder, by the unfortunately named gordon bunshaft) to see a retrospective of ai weiwei's work. the collection was also rich in other nice things, including an unexpected abundance of sculptures by barbara hepworth and an easily (but unjustly) overlooked graphite wall drawing by sol lewitt. i always want kenneth snelson's pieces to be as beautiful as they are clever but so far no luck (a particularly large one is visible in the lower right corner of the second image).
