Party Arty

By Julia Beizer

The art scene and the bar scene mix freely this Friday with two big events in the D.C. museum and gallery world.

The Hirshhorn hosts another After Hours event from 8-11 p.m. At March's After Hours event, ages ranged from early 20s to mid-50s and while half of the people looked like they just escaped the office, others were dressed in their hipster best. The common denominator was a very friendly vibe; people struck up conversations with each other in line at the bar and in front of Sugimoto's finest. Friday's event is a later-in-the-evening affair and promises to be less like a happy hour and more like a night out. Jim Lambie, the artist whose vinyl-tape installation will fill the Hirshhorn's lobby space, will be spinning records, as will DJ Neville Chamberlain, a regular DJ at Saint Ex.

Also on tap for Friday is Irvine Contemporary's official opening of its new space on 14th Street. Last week, the contemporary art gallery moved into the space once occupied by Fusebox and it plans to celebrate its new location from 6-9 p.m. The gallery's new exhibit, featuring the work of Ju-Yeon Kim, wil be on view along with another exhibit "Selections and Celebrations," featuring work by artists the gallery represents.
