Tina Berning – 100 Girls On Cheap Paper + The Passengers

The Passengers III

gallery hanahou is celebrating the release of Tina Berning’s new edition of her sold-out book ‘100 Girls on Cheap Paper’. At the same time, Tina Berning is opening her second solo show in New York, titled “The Passengers,” an exhibition that has grown out of the artist’s 2009 Munich solo show “The Listeners.”
With “The Passengers,” Tina Berning continues to explore the relationships between conditioned aesthetics and supposed subjective ambition in the canon of contemporary visuals. The drawings formulate the artist’s own images of the human body, its inadequacy and its fundamental relation to self-determination.

gallery hanahou is delighted to welcome you to the exhibition opening on Thursday, September 10th, 2009, 6-9 p.m. Please RSVP to info@galleryhanahou.com

gallery hanahou will also host a talk with the artist open to the public on Saturday, September 12th, at 2 p.m.

Located in the landmark Cable Building in the heart of Soho, gallery hanahou is newly established by CWC International, a creative agency for illustrators that has been operating in New York since 1999.

In our business of helping artists to express themselves through commercial media, we have increasingly come to desire a new way to encourage our artists to explore the furthest reaches of their creativity. We hope that gallery hanahou will be a venue through which we can introduce new dimensions of our artists’ work to the community.

We have also discovered many talented artists working in more diversified fields such as pop art, craft arts, and product design, whose work does not necessarily fit neatly into the commercial art business but is nonetheless deserving of exposure. Acting as a forum for these artists in addition to our own commercial artists, gallery hanahou will present the public with art in a dazzling array of forms: not only original paintings and prints, but also art toys, craft art, art products, and more.

what does hanahou mean??

Hanahou is a Hawaiian phrase, usually written as two words—hana hou—which means “encore!” or “more!” In addition, hana by itself also means “creation” or “creativity.” We named our gallery “hanahou” with the mission of developing a space that will become a source of rampant creativity and will be appreciated by many people—and we hope to receive cries of “encore!” for the shows we put on!
