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.
