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. You can find their work on mysunrise .
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.
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.
