  The exhibition is grand and labyrinthine - but also surprisingly intimate - it’s rich with personal narrative, political metaphor, and myth.

Izhar Patkin: The Wandering Veil will be on view at MASS MoCA through September 1. The opening reception is this Saturday, January 18. There will be an Artist Talk - Izhar Patkin with David Ross at 2pm.
