About the Artist
Commemorating the 75th anniversary of the Atomic Age, TRACES is the culmination of Peter d'Agostino's lifelong obsession with the tragic consequences of nuclear proliferation. He was born in 1945, between the A-bomb test on July 16 in New Mexico, and the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, August 6 and 9. The TRACES video installation initially premiered at three art museums across the U.S. beginning in Baltimore, March 1995. During August, it was incorporated into the 50th anniversary series of events, “Becoming Death: Cinema and the Atomic Age,” curated by Steve Seid at the Berkeley Art Museum/Pacific Film Archive. TRACES is a limited edition box set composed of a video, photographs, catalogue, letters and related ephemera dating back to 1945. It also addresses the controversy surrounding the Smithsonian's decision to modify the “Enola Gay” exhibit at the National Air and Space Museum, Washington, DC that opened in June, 1995.
