A Night Out

Through 9/22: Sun-Mon 7:30 PM

Originally written for television, this early Harold Pinter work depicts an uncharacteristically eventful night in the life of mopey, middling Albert Stokes. After a humiliating incident at an office party, he turns violently on his overbearing mother and, eventually, a chatty prostitute. Though not as lean as Pinter's best work, the play nevertheless illustrates his knack for making ordinary talk seem somehow strange and threatening. It requires precision and focus, but the script gets neither in the hands of director Dado, who turns the central party scene into shrill chaos. She further distracts from the dialogue by adding surreal touches like hallucinatory dance numbers and ghostly figures in masks. The show's sole bright spot is Maria Stephens's tense yet vulnerable performance as the motormouth prostitute. —Zac Thompson $10

Pictures for an Exhibition

6/6-9/26

A tricked-out Fiat is suspended from a wall in the Museum of Contemporary Art's atrium. "It's kind of a gravitational mindfuck," senior curator Dieter Roelstraete says of the piece, the entry point into "Metamorphology," the first major museum survey in the U.S. of the British conceptual artist Simon Starling, opening June 7. A stone's throw away at the Arts Club of Chicago, an associated Starling show, "Pictures for an Exhibition," debuts June 6. Starling's attention-grabbing auto is bound to appeal to any visitor whose appreciation for an artwork directly corresponds to how Instagrammable it is. But Flaga, 1972-2002 isn't merely a spectacle. As Magritte might say, "Ceci n'est pas une ordinary car." In 2002, Starling bought a ruby-red Fiat 126—that emblem of Italian industry—and drove it from Turin, where it was originally manufactured, to Cieszyn, Poland, where production is now based. There he replaced the hood, doors, and trunk with Polish-manufactured white parts, so that the red-and-white car he drove back to Turin resembled the Polish flag. Displayed like a painting in the museum, the custom ride is a statement on corporate globalization, commercialization, and how modes of production determine meaning. Continue reading >>
