MoMA and DADA, 2020



   MATERIALS: 3 spreads inside the book Modern Artifacts.

    There is only one photo of my father as a child. We lived in Honduras, a country with more governments than years of independence, and until recently lacking a comprehensive written history. In contrast, MoMA’s history is well documented. MoMA and my Dada’s birth are only a few years apart, MoMA and DADA have had a long relationship, and so did my Moma and Dada. Could I tell the story of one through the history of the other?
