National Gallery of Art

Noe Todorovich

One of my favorite places in Washington, DC is the National Gallery of Art. I particularly love the East Building. Beyond the amazing art, the architecture of the building itself is stunning.

The building recently reopened after a three-year renovation including creating additional gallery space and a lovely rooftop terrace with sculptures including the now famous "Hahn/Cock" by Katharina Fritsch on long-term loan from Glenstone. When I last visiting, the three towers each houses the following artists' works: Barbara Kruger, Alexander Calder, Mark Rothko, and Barnett Newman. Some of these exhibits will be limited time while others will rotate the works displayed or remain longer term.

I really enjoyed checking out the new digs during NGA Evenings at the Edge program where the museum stays open late with performances, music, and pop-up talks. (NOTE: One such night remains in April, so be sure to sign up if you haven't been yet...or if you have and want more!) 

Infinite Kusama at the Hirshhorn

Noe Todorovich

The Yayoi Kusama exhibition at the Hirshhorn has taken over DC and likely your Instagram feed since it opened last week...and for good reason. I had the pleasure of checking it out on opening day when a friend couldn't use her pass and returning a few days later with some friends to brave the weekend crowds. It was all well worth it.

While the pictures and videos are incredible, they still do not and simply cannot do it justice. If you get the chance, go see it for yourself and even lower your phone or camera down for at least a few seconds to fully immerse yourself in the experience. A quick PSA: Be prepared to stand in lines; be gracious to the staff who are working HARD to provide the opportunity for us to experience this exhibition; and, lastly, my general life advice...don't be a jerk.

Chicago Film Medley

Noe Todorovich

When I travel, much of my packing time is spent deliberating which cameras, if any, to bring with me. I like to travel light, given my propensity for walking miles upon miles exploring, but I also like to document my travels. On this last trip to Chicago, I opted for just my 35mm film camera and iPhone. I brought two rolls of B&W and one of color. I also realized that double exposures are often my favorite shots but I seldom shoot them, so this time around I made an extra effort on that front. Some of the results are below...

All B&W self-developed and scanned. Color processing and scans provided by The FIND Lab.

ICEBERGS at the National Building Museum

Noe Todorovich

Each summer, the National Building Museum holds a Summer Block Party series, transforming the Great Hall into an immersive experience.

This year, ICEBERGS graced the museum. Designed by James Corner Field Operations, the installation provides visitors the opportunity to view icebergs from both above and below the water line...and even slide down one. 

ICEBERGS closes today (September 5, 2016), so make your way over to the National Building Museum if you haven't done so yet! Already looking forward to the next iteration of the Summer Block Party series next year...

Toki Synth Series 002

Noe Todorovich

I first found out about Toki (an artistic duo comprised of recent architecture graduates Toluwalase Rufai & Khai Grubbs) through A Creative DC last summer. As soon as I learned about the Synth Series installation in an abandoned building near Rhode Island Metro Station, I couldn't wait to see it for myself. I reached out to some artsy and adventurous friends, and we got to planning our visit. 

The experience was unlike any other I have experienced both in DC and in the art world. It pushed me outside of my comfort zone and inspired me to explore where I never would have otherwise. It was a beautiful juxtaposition of an abandoned, decaying building and intentional, melodic art. While Instagram filled up with photos of the installation, nothing was quite like experiencing it for yourself. That's part of what motivated me to document the experience and installation through video. I also wanted to delve a bit deeper into the story behind the piece by speaking with the artists and giving them the opportunity to share a bit about how it came to be and what the experience has been like for them. And to create something to help the piece live on after itand the building that held itwas gone. 

A very special thank you to Tolu & Khai for letting me help tell the story of Synth Series 002 and, more importantly, for infusing DC with your unique, mesmerizing art in often overlooked spaces. Can't wait to see what the future holds for you! 

Find out more about Toki on their website and follow Tolu and Khai on Instagram to see more of their work!
