You can head to the NBMAA anytime before Thanksgiving to view Korean-American artist Atta Kim's new exhibit, which features seven photographs, including "The Museum Project #125" from his 2001 Nirvana Series (pictured). But you'd be wise to go to the opening this Friday at 5:30 p.m. to hear his son Ira Kim talk about his father's work. Atta Kim, whose work is influenced by both Heidegger and Buddhism, used long-exposure photography to provide "new modes of seeing." Indeed.

Ends Nov. 25, opening reception Sept. 7, 5:30-8 p.m., $10-$15, New Britain Museum of American Art, 56 Lexington St., New Britain, (860) 229-0257,
