Weve been up all night, furiously burning rubber over highways and back roads, derailing dawns sunlit offensive. Can you taste the neurons firing? Our synapses crack as sharp as AK bullets. Our quest for speed abuses time and space. Three-o-five is our battle cry; in Dade we trust. Your weak blood is unfit for gasoline. Tonight aint over till we say it is.
Find out about our continued obsession with haste at Speed Limits, a new exhibition at the Wolfsonian, which opens Friday and runs through February 10 in honor of the 100th anniversary of Italian futurism. See how everything from posters to appliances have been morphed by modernisms cult of hurry. Futurism is so last century. Admission costs $7 for adults or $5 for seniors, students, and children ages 6 to 12.
Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays-Sundays. Starts: Sept. 17. Continues through Feb. 20, 2010
