And the Beat Goes On

By Julia Beizer

The National Gallery announced yesterday that it will extend its performance of George Antheil's film score for "Le Ballet mechanique" until May 14, the last day of the museum's "Dada" exhibit. It was supposed to close next Wednesday, but the smart people at the Gallery know a good thing when they see it. The crazy performance is definitely worth a visit.

Was in attendance yesterday afternoon and it was a very interesting performance - BUT why didnt they have a movie screen or projection of the short film running at the same time? The combination of music and noise was very cool - but rather than trying to imagine what it was relating to, it would have been great to watch the film at the same time.

Why are they only running the 4 pm show on weekdays? So annoying. They should run it twice on weekends as well.

to alexandra: considering the piece of music is longer than the film and never matched up anyway since it was written without access to the film, I'm not sure the combination would be terribly enlightening. It is terrific that it will continue running through the end of the exhibit, though - all that work to set it up should be appreciated by anyone who goes for the Dada exhibit.
