Todd Hido, in conversation with Sharon Harper, Associate Professor of Visual and Environmental Studies, Harvard University

Todd Hido makes night photographs of suburban neighborhoods, using long exposures to capture the effects of fog, and light from streetlamps and windows. Hido’s project relates closely to Feininger’s atmospheric night photographs of the Bauhaus building and the surrounding neighborhood.”

Opening Reception: Thursday, March 17, 2011, 6 – 9 pm
The exhibition will be open from March 8th to April 9th, 2011

“We rarely have the opportunity to dwell in the world of the unique artist’s book, as considerations of security render its purpose almost impotent in the context of the museum, and its very uniqueness insures that any individual example is going to have an almost hermetic history.  It is therefore with great excitement that we announce an exhibition of unique artist’s books, curated by artist Heide Hatry, herself a former rare bookseller and maker of unique books.”  [read more]

An exhibition catalog will be available at the opening reception, with texts by Thyrza Nichols Goodeve and others.  The catalog is $35, contact the gallery to purchase.
