The Daily Shortlist December 23
In the exhibition Intervals: Ryan Gander, the British contemporary artist has created a site-specific installation in the Aye Simon Reading Room, located on Rotunda Level 2. Here visitors encounter a scene of apparent catastrophe that relates to Gander’s ongoing exploration of the schism between once good friends, Dutch artists Piet Mondrian (1872–1944) and Theo van Doesburg (1883–1931) who ended their friendship in 1924 due to creative differences. Now that it’s cold out, what better way to warm up than with some BBQ. Brother Jimmy’s Bait Shack is known for their BBQ’d meats, smoked in house. The menu is all Southern favorites like po boys, catfish, fried chicken, along with burgers. Though it’s small, Cavatappo Wine Bar packs a mighty punch, offering an amazing selection of wines from all over the world for under $10 a glass. With more than 40 TVs featuring sports, Ship of Fools also has darts, pool tables, and video games.
