Phil Toledano: Maybe
Feb. 6 – March 12, 2016

Opening Reception: Feb. 6, 6-8 pm (artist will be present)
Artist Talk: Feb. 5, 7-8pm at the Denver Art Museum

Featured in the New York Times, New Yorker, The Guardian, and in exhibitions around the world, Maybe is Toledano’s startling response to the unexpected death of his mother in 2006.
“When my mother died, it made me realize that you don’t have any control over your destiny at all,” said Toledano in an interview with the New York Times. I became quite fearful of what sharp turns life had in store for me and what other terrible unforeseen things might happen.”
He decided to confront his fears of death and aging head-on, by photographing his “future self” in various stages he could imagine himself experiencing at the end of his life. But how does one photograph the future?
