Getting Up Guide: New Yorker's Alex Ross; first ladies of dance
What are your plans tonight? The Getting Up Guide is here to help you answer that question. Here's what's happening Monday:
Guillermo Kuitca: Everything-- Paintings and Works on Paper, 1980 - 2008
An art exhibition featuring maps, seating charts and architectural floor plans might sound mundane, but in Guillermo Kuitca's hands, the result is richly rewarding. The show's central fixture and namesake is a 22-foot-wide cartographic wonder from 2004 that's divided into four nearly identical white-on-black canvases depicting Calgary, Charleston, Kansas City and Philadelphia as geographic neighbors. At the Hirshhorn.
The New Yorker's Alex Ross is an authority in everything from 19th-century classical music to '90s alternative rock and today's of-the-moment indie rock. The music critic discusses and signs his new book, "Listen to This," which serves as a roadmap for Generation Shuffle, at Politics & Prose at 7 p.m.
Five First Ladies of Dance
Witness modern dance through the eyes of performers Carmen de Lavallade, Germaine Acogny, Dianne McIntyre, Bebe Miller, and Jawole Willa Jo Zollar. Limited tickets remain for tonight's 7:30 p.m. performance at the Kennedy Center.
