Library of Congress - Thomas Jefferson Building
One time only screening of 'Hawk & Dove' on April 24th at noon.
Referring in part to the brief residency of a Cooper’s Hawk in the Main Reading Room of the Library of Congress in 2010, and archive images of the Graf Zeppelin near the Capitol in 1928, Isabella Streffen’s Hawk and Dove is a film using footage shot from two 7ft remote-controlled zeppelins – the Hawk and the Dove – engaged in a balletic ‘dogfight’ at the Library of Congress and Martin Luther King Library. In a city whose existence owes everything to the exercise of political power, Hawk and Dove literally explores the corridors of power and the role of knowledge in the shaping of political debate.
The DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities' 5x5 project will exhibit 25 ground-breaking public art installations commissioned by artists from around the world.
