Mirror, Mirror On The Wall by Patrizio Travagli

  • Italian Cultural Institute @ Embassy of Italy 3000 Whitehaven Street Northwest Washington, DC, 20008 United States (map)

The Embassy of Italy and the Italian Cultural Institute are pleased to present the exhibition opening of Mirror, Mirror On The Wall by Patrizio Travagli.

Patrizio Travagli invites us to turn our attention to the disturbing singularity of the mirror. How many times have mirrors deceived us? How many times, even if for a few moments, have we believed that the reflected image was a window or a door, an entrance not to Wonderland, as it was for Lewis Carroll's Alice, but to our own common, everyday world?

In the exhibition Mirror, Mirror On The Wall, artist Patrizio Travagli asks you, the viewer, to become the piece of art. Your reflection in the mirror is the launching point for questions about identity, illusion, and reality.
