Pull, Poke, Fold showcases recent work by Wendy Kawabata. The work explores simple activities of the hand, remediation of everyday materials in contemporary art practice, and the power of repetitive process. The work is used as a presentation of visual research into the Japanese concept of Ma, a spatial concept that emphasizes interval over composition and simultaneous awareness of both form and space. Wendy Kawabata's work will be exhibited at UICA from April 2 to May 28, 2010.

Wendy Kawabata earned a BFA from the Massachusetts College of Art and an MFA from the University of New Mexico. She is currently a professor of Art & Art History at the University of Hawaii at Manoa.
