The Perfect Measure is a one night only exhibit - on Friday July 24th, 6 – 9pm.
A gift from Marina Luz to Todd Hido was the trigger for the collaboration between the two artists. Between their work, there is a connection that is evident but not spelled out completely, based on the mutual recognition of gestures and expressions reaching a measure of empathy with which they both identify.
Working together and sometimes taking inspiration from the same situation, while at other times associating images realized separately, Hido and Luz have selected a number of works for this site-specific installation that originally appeared in Milan in April 2015.
Their collaboration led to change and growth in both of their work; Hido is working with very small-scale prints (nothing larger than 8″ x 10″), and Luz has been forced to examine the emotions her images convey, rather than just considering the form.
Todd Hido’s work has been featured in Artforum, The New York Times Magazine, Wired, and Vanity Fair. His photographs are in the permanent collections of the Getty, the Whitney Museum of Art, and the Guggenheim Museum. He has over a dozen published books; his most recent monograph titled Excerpts from Silver Meadows was released in 2013. His upcoming mid-career survey will be published by Aperture in 2016.
Marina Luz is an Emmy Award-winning illustrator whose work has appeared in the New York Times, VICE, Propublica, and Center for Investigative Reporting, among others. She runs her design studio HONEYLUX out of Oakland, CA.
