Rafael Lozano-Hemmer is one of the most highly acclaimed urban artists working today, but his pieces wouldn’t exist without participation. MEGALODEMOCRAT explores Lozano-Hemmer’s quest to stage a democratic takeover of public space. Shot over ten years in thirty cities around the world, the film provides intimate access to his large-scale interactive creations in locations such as Trafalgar Square in London, the Vancouver Olympics, the El Paso/Ciudad Juárez border, and New York City’s Park Avenue Tunnel. Lozano-Hemmer’s work is a rallying point for an alienated urban population, longing to connect. Much like his art, MEGALODEMOCRAT is global in scope yet intimate in detail: epic, wide-ranging, and at its heart, a journey.

Join the Hirshhorn for the DC premiere of MEGALODEMOCRAT, followed by a short conversation with film director Benjamin Duffield and artist Rafael Lozano-Hemmer.

We encourage you to arrive early. Ring Auditorium seating is limited. Any open seats may be released to walk-up visitors 10 minutes before the program.

About the Director

Benjamin Duffield is a Montreal-based filmmaker who works both sides of the street, directing and editing fictional and documentary films. Since his graduation from the University of British Columbia with a B.A. in Film and Theater in 1993, he has created award-winning film and television for the Canadian and American markets. Most recently, he directed the sci-fi feature Darwin (featuring Nick Krause and Molly Parker), which premiered at the 2016 Vancouver Film Festival, and co-edited Rumble: The Indians Who Rocked the World, which won a Special Jury Prize for Masterful Storytelling at Sundance 2017 and Canadian Screen Awards for Best Feature Documentary, Best Cinematography, and Best Editing in 2018.
