Izhar Patkin: The Wandering Veil

On view through September 1, 2014
Galleries

Hear The Poetry of Agha Shahid Ali, which inspired Izhar Patkin's The Wandering Veil read live Thursday, April 24 at MASS MoCA.

This long-awaited survey of works by the Israeli-born, New York-based artist Izhar Patkin takes over the museum's largest gallery. Grand, labyrinthine yet also surprisingly intimate, the exhibition is rich with personal narrative, political metaphor, and myth, highlighting the many formal innovations Patkin has pioneered over his 30-year career.

Read a recent profile of Izhar Patkin from the New York Times and coverage of Izhar Patkin: The Wandering Veil from The Boston Globe, The Wall Street Journal, and WAMC.

Making its U.S. debut, the show's centerpiece is a cycle of spectacular mural-size paintings on tulle fabric entitled "Veiled Threats," inspired by the late Kashmiri-American poet Agha Shahid Ali's writings on memory, loss, love, and exile.

Patkin speaks with ArtInfo in his New York studio, January 2014.

Patkin says Sex is next. Click here to see his entire January 2014 conversation with David Ross, at MASS MoCA.

Co-organized by MASS MoCA, The Wandering Veil travels to North Adams from the Tel Aviv Museum of Art and the Tefen Open Museum in Israel, where it premiered last year.


This exhibition is supported by Lynn Holstein and Artis with additional funding provided by Rivka Saker, the Consulate General of Israel to New England, the Agha Shahid Ali Literary Trust, the Horace W. Goldsmith Foundation, and the Massachusetts Cultural Council.
