Within walking this weekend: Art and Vinyl, outdoor Bollywood, tree-ripened peaches, Arboretum walk

The Record: Contemporary Art and Vinyl — Henry Art Gallery — Friday, 11-9; Saturday & Sunday 11-4 — through October 7th

The Record: Contemporary Art and Vinyl, organized by the Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University, is the first museum exhibition to explore the culture of vinyl records within the history of contemporary art. Bringing together artists from around the world who have worked with records as their subject or medium, this groundbreaking exhibition examines the record’s transformative power from the 1960s to the present.

Through sculpture, installation, drawing, painting, photography, sound work, video and performance, The Record combines contemporary art with outsider art, audio with visual, and fine art with popular culture.

The exhibition features 99 works by 41 artists, including rising stars in the contemporary art world (William Cordova, Robin Rhode, Dario Robleto), outsider artists (Mingering Mike), well-established artists (Ed Ruscha, Carrie Mae Weems) and artists whose work will be shown in U.S. museums for the first time (Kevin Ei-ichi deForest, Jeroen Diepenmaat, Taiyo Kimura, Lyota Yagi).
