MOTI HASSON GALLERY is very pleased to announce the opening of intransit\, an exhibition featuring 30 artists curated by Omar Lopez-Cha houd. The exhibition runs from July 10 to August 30\, 2008. Please join us for the opening reception on Thursday\, July 10\, from 6 to 8 pm with a per formance by Micki Pellerano at 7:15 pm.

intransit brings togethe r 30 artists working in different media such as ceramics\, drawing\, painti ng\, sculpture\, film and video. To deal with the cracks in the urban lands cape and its decay\, the artists have built cross-sections of ecological\, racial\, and identity issues as metaphors. These meditations\, rife with et hnographic\, historical and natural symbolism\, help to reinforce a positio n amidst surmounting struggles &mdash\; for instance\, the fight against gl obal warming and the disappearing ideal of the globalized world &mdash\; to assert their multi-faceted voices and identities. This show presents a dyn amic look at today's society\, a complex and poetic visual journey.
