Opening for Daria Martin: Tonight the World

  • Contemporary Jewish Museum 736 Mission Street San Francisco, CA, 94103 United States (map)

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. Theresa Wong will give a short performance to celebrate the opening along with Daria Martin for a CJM members event.
