Save the date for our next live #ArtTalk with the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden

Formative to the development of the Hirshhorn’s exhibition Damage Control: Art and Destruction Since 1950 is the work of artist Gustav Metzger. Metzger, who escaped the Holocaust as a child in 1939 by fleeing to England, has influenced generations of artists with his concept of Auto-Destructive art, the direct use of destruction in art as a response to the self-destructive tendencies and policies of society. 

On April 25 at 12:30 p.m. (EDT) join the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden and the Google Art Project for a rare opportunity to hear directly from Gustav Metzger, who will be in conversation with the co-curator of the Damage Control exhibition and the Hirshhorn’s Interim Director and Chief Curator Kerry Brougher and Andrew Wilson, Curator of Modern & Contemporary British Art, and Archives at +Tate. Send us your questions during the live broadcast!

Metzger was also co-organizer of the 1966 Destruction in Art Symposium (DIAS) in London, a month-long event that brought together artists from around the world who were engaging in destructive activities. Metzger’s work and the invocation of destruction in art remain as relevant and important as they were more than fifty years ago when he wrote the first Auto-Destructive Art manifesto. 
This Hangout On Air is hosted by Google Art Project. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

'Hare' by Albrecht Dürer is now available in #Gigapixel resolution!

Albrecht Dürer’s famous 'Hare' is the artist’s most famous study of nature and one of the finest in Western art. It is regarded as one of the most important artworks of the Albertina's collection, on account of its extraordinarily realistic depiction. 

The watercolor painting is so light sensitive that it can only be shown to the public every few years. From now on, everyone can experience the magic of this masterpiece at the most incredible level of detail at any time.
