‘Days of Endless Time’ at the Hirshhorn examines our need for nature to soothe us

When the exhibition was announced, as part of the Hirshhorn’s 40th anniversary season, it sounded like an exercise in high-end art therapy. The works are drawn from top international video artists, including Douglas Gordon, David Claerbout, Robert Wilson and Eija-Liisa Ahtila, and are offered as responses to “the frantic, 24/7 flow of information and the ephemerality of digital media.” The show’s themes, according to the museum’s Web site, “include escape, solitude, enchantment, and the thrall of nature.”
