‘The Record: Contemporary Art and Vinyl’

Why: Any exhibition of art inspired by vinyl records could easily be nostalgic or dudey. But The Record—a collection of sculptures, videos, photographs, paintings, and installations that traveled here from the Nasher Museum at Duke University—is fresh, varied, sometimes funny, and occasionally heartbreaking. It introduces little-known artists (Taiyo Kimura, with a knife taped on his face, chopping fruit as it spins on the turntable), provides the best of the classics (Christian Marclay’s video of interrupted love songs is painfully true to life), and you get David Byrne, Mingering Mike, Billie Holiday, and Laurie Anderson, too. (Henry Art Gallery, 4100 15th Ave NE, www.henryart.org, 11 am–4 pm, $10 suggested)
