Hirshhorn Museum is in the midst of exhibiting ‘Damage Control: Art and Destruction since the 1950s’. The exhibition runs until May 2014 and features work by artists such as Yoko Ono, Yves Klein, Andy Warhol, and many more stars of the last 64 years.

When a physics-related social media page promoted this exhibition in late 2013, it sparked a heated debate over whether a nuclear explosion – something that caused so much destruction, could be considered art. But that is indeed the beauty of art, and indeed that is perhaps one of the great struggles of human nature – that we look upon destruction with such awe (if we didn’t, Hollywood would surely go out of business). Art can be a way of understanding entropy. Art is about destruction, whether damning or beautiful, and the works in this exhibition reflect that.

One such example is Raphael Montañez Ortiz’s Piano Destruction Concert (video can be seen here). Ortiz uses the piano as a microcosm - a metaphor for the city, and the undoing of the beauty within that microcosm during war. Interestingly, this piece received more reactions of disgust than artworks such as Andy Warhol’s 1965 ‘Atomic Bomb’.

Some may be disturbed by the idea that a nuclear explosion can be art, but consider this – these works are a reflection of our society, and a reflection of our recent history, so perhaps it is not the art we should be disturbed by.

"I actually attack the concept of happiness. The idea that - I don’t mind people being happy - but the idea that everything we do is part of the pursuit of happiness seems to me a really dangerous idea and has led to a contemporary disease in Western society, which is fear of sadness. It’s a really odd thing that we’re now seeing people saying “write down 3 things that made you happy today before you go to sleep”, and “cheer up” and “happiness is our birthright” and so on. We’re kind of teaching our kids that happiness is the default position - it’s rubbish. Wholeness is what we ought to be striving for and part of that is sadness, disappointment, frustration, failure; all of those things which make us who we are. Happiness and victory and fulfillment are nice little things that also happen to us, but they don’t teach us much. Everyone says we grow through pain and then as soon as they experience pain they say “Quick! Move on! Cheer up!” I’d like just for a year to have a moratorium on the word “happiness” and to replace it with the word “wholeness”. Ask yourself “is this contributing to my wholeness?” and if you’re having a bad day, it is."

"The quicker we all realize that we’ve been taught how to live life by people that were operating on the momentum of an ignorant past the quicker we can move to a global ethic of community that doesn’t value invented borders, or the monopolization of natural resources, but rather the goal of a happier, more loving humanity."

Dear Toro Y Moi,

Who knew you’d walk into the same bar before your show. Some people call it starstruck, I call it “passionate about an artist,” and it doesn’t matter if you’re mainstream or indie. Wish there was more time for a conversation because you’re so weird, and that is reflected in your work. Your music jams, your art screams louder. Thanks for showing love last night by getting us into your sold out show in Houston at Fitzgerald’s. Only in Texas would there be crowd surfing and moshing to your music. Bananas!
