Hirshhorn Plaza

Join us on October 17th to mark the 40th anniversary of the Hirshhorn Museum. Be among the first to see the completely renovated and reinstalled 3rd floor galleries and a new multimedia exhibition, Days of Endless Time. The evening includes late-night gallery hours, curator talks, and a special live performance by Zola Jesus.



At the Hub of Things: New Views of the Collection
Be among the first to view the newly renovated Third Level galleries, which have been restored to architect Gordon Bunshaft’s original design. The debut exhibition, At the Hub of Things: New Views of the Collection, offers a freshly conceived presentation of works from the past 75 years. Galleries are organized around ideas such as history and memory, personal symbolic systems, the overlap of Pop and Minimalism, and the classical figure. Curator-led tour at 8:30 pm.


Days of Endless Time
In a world conditioned by the frantic, 24/7 flow of information and the ephemerality of digital media, many moving-image artists are countering these tendencies with works that emphasize slower, more meditative forms of perception. Days of Endless Time presents fourteen installations that offer prismatic vantage points into the suspension and attenuation of time or that create a sense of timelessness. Themes include escape, solitude, enchantment, and the thrall of nature. Curator-led tour at 9:30 pm.


Tickets can be purchased online, by phone at 866.868.7774, or in person at any Smithsonian IMAX Box Office. Check back here for more information on the upcoming After Hours event!
