Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden
Independence Avenue at 7th Street, SW
Washington, DC

Level 2 Floor Plan

In this unprecedented 2-part exhibition The Cinema Effect: Illusion, Reality, and the Moving Image, the Hirshhorn takes an in-depth look at moving-image art works by a range of influential and emerging international artists who use film language to explore the ever-increasing impact of the cinematic on our perceptions on what is real and what is illusion. In Part II - Realism, it explores the phenomenon that in an age when capturing real life in real time becomes ever easier, the line between fact and fiction is increasingly complicated.
