Mitchell-Innes & Nash is pleased to announce that Monica Bonvicini will be the subject of a major one-person survey at the BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art, Gateshead, UK. Using sculpture, installation, video, photography, text and performance, Bonvicini's work ranges from the intimate to the architectural in scale, questioning some of the often hidden forces that shape identity. The exhibition, titled her hand around the room, will present an overview of Bonvicini's work from throughout her career alongside specially comissioned new works.
