  1. Not to be picky, but the dates on the Zoe Leonard installation are confusing. You say it’s going on from now until December of 2004, apparently in violation of certain temporal-spatial laws. If I click on the title, there is a note that says it will be available only over the Christmas holidays in 2014. Are either of those dates right?

    1. What… what decade is this?

      You’re correct (and thank you), it’s up through the end of 2014. Opened December 2013. So you’ve got 6 months to go see this sucker. It’s worth the effort.
