A Fact Which Occurred in America in 1809


This has got to be the best title I’ve seen for a piece in a good while.  I love it precisely because it leaves so little to the imagination.  It is currently on view at the Menil Collection, as part of the “Byzantine Things in the World” exhibit, curated by Glenn Peers, which is one of the best-curated shows I have seen in a while (and I am literally just returning from the Venice Biennale and Paris).

Expect to read more about this show in the coming weeks.  It is on view through August 18, 2013.
