ADMISSION: Free and open to the public
Join us to celebrate the opening of Daria Martin: Tonight the World.
Co-commissioned by The CJM, San Francisco-born artist Daria Martin’s immersive installation Tonight the World draws upon dream diaries kept by her grandmother over a 35-year period. Through atmospheric film and gaming technology, Martin stages a series of intimate encounters that envelop viewers in an exploration of the curious and traumatic history of her grandmother, who fled the imminent Nazi occupation of Czechoslovakia.
Membership at The Contemporary Jewish Museum (The CJM) grants you access to an exciting array of contemporary art, music, film, and educational programming. Not a Member? Join today!
Daria Martin: Tonight the World has been commissioned by Barbican, London and co-commissioned by The Contemporary Jewish Museum, San Francisco. The exhibition is curated by Heidi Rabben, Senior Curator, The Contemporary Jewish Museum.
