Directions: Grazia Toderi @ Hirshhorn Museum

Directions: Grazia Toderi
April 21 through September 5

Grazia Toderi likens her video projections to "frescoes of light." Best known for large-scale installations, the artist works from documentary imagery collected from urban night surveillance and military, satellite, and space program footage. Over these she superimposes her own photography and cinematography, altering the effect with digital manipulations and unifying the vista with sepia-tone filters.

Meet the Artist: Grazia Toderi
Thursday, April 21, 6:45pm

On the opening night of Directions: Grazia Toderi, the Italian artist introduces her recent projections and drawings which transform the artifacts of a culture obsessed with technology and surveillance into celestial meditations both poetic and chilling. The exhibition will be open prior to the program.
