CLOSING SOON: Chris Larson: Land Speed Record
Experience Chris Larson: Land Speed Record one last time before it closes. Land Speed Record focuses on objects and memories left behind when their architectural enclosure has disappeared. The piece explores a group of smoke-blackened objects-including antiques, auto parts, rock ephemera, master tapes, and musical instruments-from the childhood home of band member Grant Hart, which were retrieved from a 2011 fire. Photographs on view, made by Larson and Hart, reveal the drum kit in shadow, layered with the memories of the spaces the sounds once inhabited.
