November 4 – November 27, 2011
Opening Reception: Friday, November 4, 6 – 9 PM
MBN Studios presents Out In Out, curated by Michael Moore and Paul Hamanaka.
Michael and Paul both teach drawing at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts.
It is our wish that each drawing will consist of the ingredients that are similar to those of
human beings – an epidermis, an outside, a surface - that introduce and reveal a life
being lived within, enticing and encouraging others to look harder and inquire more, to
better know the interior – the energy, personality, mind, spirit, and soul – so that the life-
affirming dynamic relationship between what-we-can-see and what-we-cannot-see in your
drawings will inspire in us something about those same qualities in all of us - how we look
because of who we are and who we are because of how we look – just like drawing, just
like art – Out In Out.
There are various forms of drawings presented: Video drawings, color drawings, assemblage drawings, installation drawings, and even performance drawing.
We hope that this exhibition will deepen the view of drawing as a viable form of material craft, and broaden our understanding of the origins of the impulse to draw.
Artists presented are:
Jannalyn Bailey, Phillippa Beardsley, Jessica Braiterman, Matej Branc, Gretchen Diehl
Diana Dodson, Kirsten Fisher, KatrinaFunk, Eric Huckerbee, Adam Lovitz,
Ana Maria GomezLopez, April Loveday, Sofya Mirvis, Cynthia Oswald, SarahPeoples,
Ana Vizcarra Rankin, Brian Spies, Susan Stromquist, Chelsea Thoumsin

It is my hope that this body of drawings trigger several associations within the viewer. I have removed the outer layer of clothing, and exposed what may, or may not be under every lady’s skirt. That’s for the viewer to decide.
Some drawings are serious, some are humorous or delicate and they all quake with ephemerality. The bodily region I have chosen to objectify is marked by so many things that predate our modern society; sex, childbirth, shame, cleanliness, pleasure, maturity and puberty. I can’t help but notice, in our late modernity, image has the power to define or deny anyone.
