About Daniel Terna
Daniel Terna (b. Brooklyn, NY, 1987) is a Brooklyn-based artist working with photography and video. As the son of a 95 year-old Holocaust survivor and painter, he has produced several photographic series and short films about family history and inherited trauma, subverting traditional ideas of memorialization in his exploration of various sites such as the Dachau Concentration Camp, military history museums across the United States, and bomb shelters in Israel. In 2017, his work focused on mass gatherings and protests such as Trump’s Inauguration, the Women’s March, and the Juggalo March on Washington, among others. His most recent body of work, photographs made in Hong Kong, Bangkok, Tokyo, and Los Angeles, is currently on view in a two-person show at LY Gallery (March 22-May 11, 2019, Los Angeles, CA).
Terna has participated in select group exhibitions at Jack Barrett (New York, NY); the Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts (New York, NY); Galeria Breve (Mexico City, MX); Foley Gallery (New York, NY); MoMA PS1 (New York, NY); Baxter St. Camera Club of NY (New York, NY); the International Center of Photography (New York, NY); New Wight Biennial (UCLA, Los Angeles, CA); BRIC Arts Media Biennial (Brooklyn, NY); Eyebeam (New York, NY); The Wild Project (New York, NY); the Carpenter Center for Visual Arts (Cambridge, MA); Armory Center for the Arts (Pasadena, CA); Contemporary Arts Center (New Orleans, LA); and Gallery Tayuta (Tokyo, JP). Terna was a resident in the Collaborative Fellowship Program at UnionDocs, Brooklyn, and was awarded the Cuts and Burns Residency at Outpost Artist Resources in Ridgewood, NY. His work has been featured in Still Magazine, The New York Times, Dazed, Oxford American, Conveyor Magazine, Aint Bad Magazine, and Slate.
