You must see this work of art by Eve Sussman and a group of performers called the Rufus Corporation, because when you do, you will learn something about yourself. Rape of the Sabine Women is a huge, elaborate, sexy, self-important, beautiful movie layered with references to neoclassical paintings (Poussin, David, Rubens) depicting the mythical tale of the founding of Rome. It lasts 80 minutes and moves from a 1960s house party to an International Style airport to an elongated, smoke-machined, dancelike sequence of writhing bodies in an amphitheater. Will you love it, or will you hate it? (Henry Art Gallery, 4100 15th Ave NE, 543-2280. 11 am–5 pm, $10. Through March 22.)
