Opening Reception for "Michiko Itatani: Personal Codes" on Thursday, October 21, at the Handwerker Gallery

The Handwerker Gallery invites you to the opening reception for "Michiko Itatani: Personal Codes" on Thursday, October 21, from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m.

This exhibition features paintings and drawings from Itatani's most recent body of work, "Personal Codes," which is divided into two series of works entitled Hyper Baroque and Moon Light/Mooring. She describes the series as "two parallel fictions based on the human desire to reach out into the mental and physical space beyond our grasp. One is looking out, and the other is looking in."

Michiko Itatani will give an artist’s talk on October 28 at 6:00 p.m., and the work will remain on view until December 10. An illustrated catalogue will accompany the exhibition.
