205 Hudson Street is pleased to announce an artist talk by Mika Tajima as part of MFASO Spring 2017 Lecture Series. Connecting geometric abstraction to the shape of our built environment, Tajima’s work explores possible forms and activities defined by divisive spaces in which objects outline performer action and viewer positions. Abstraction operates at the edges of rationalism, décor, and representation, reframing the modernist project in a post-Fordist context – the world of immaterial circulation and information.

Born in 1975 in Los Angeles, California, Tajima is a New York based artist. Tajima received an MFA from Columbia University School of the Arts in 2003.Select solo exhibitions include Seattle Art Museum; Visual Arts Center at University of Texas; Bass Museum, Miami; X Initiative, New York; The Kitchen, New York; RISD Museum, Rhode Island; Circuit, Switzerland. Group exhibitions include 2008 Whitney Biennial; Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago; Contemporary Art Center Cincinnati, OH; PS 1 Contemporary Art Center, NY; Swiss Institute Contemporary Art, NY; among others.
