"The Same River Twice Part 1" is an exhibition at the Institute of Modern Art, at the Judith Wright Centre on Brunswick St in the Valley. It's about historical re-enactment in art.

The main features are:

  • Gerard Byrne's film of a restaging of a Playboy roundtable discussion on new sexual lifestyles.

  • Thomas Demand's photos of his paper sculptures designed to look like reality:

  • Slave Pianos, who take music written by artists and turn it into sheet music to be played by a robot.
The Same River Twice Part 1 is on until February 28th 2009.

EDIT: It's closed for Christmas holidays right now, it will be open again on Monday January 12th 2008.
