Jack Nicholson and Meryl Streep Are the New Him + Her

First, there was "his and her" towels.

Then, there was She & Him, the indie pop collaboration of Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward.

Today, there is Him + Her, a video installation by Candice Breitz:
The exhibition features two seven-channel installations: Him (1968-2008) montages together a conversation between 23 Jack Nicholsons extracted from films made over a period of 40 years, while Her (1978 – 2008) places 28 Meryl Streeps – drawn out of 30 years’ worth of films – into dialogue with one another.
There will be an opening reception for Him + Her from 6 to 8 tonight at Yvon Lambert (550 West 21st Street). The exhibit will be on view until March 21.

It's getting harder and harder to keep these pronouns in check.
