EINSTEIN EXHIBIT BY CALTECH
The Einstein Papers Project at Caltech is proud to present three installations at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion during the performances of Einstein On The Beach. The exhibitions will include an installation of twelve large portraits of Albert Einstein created by the noted photographer Herman Landshoff. Entitled “Albert Einstein At Home,” the photographs present intimate yet iconic images of Einstein during the years 1946-1950, taken at his last abode at 12 Mercer Street in Princeton, NJ. Einstein was a visiting scientist at Caltech during three winter terms in the early 1930s. A second installation presents nine large panels that incorporate collages of original documents relating to Einstein’s activities while at Caltech, including newspaper clippings, photographs with distinguished scientists, visits to Mt. Wilson Observatory, to Palm Springs, and to the movies – with Charlie Chaplin. Einstein’s interests and passions ranged widely. He played the piano and the violin, and had wide-ranging correspondence with major figures in European and US cultural life. A third installation presents a selection of archival documents, images, and texts on music and musicians. More info here.
