TWIN KITTENS presents ICONIDOKU– a series of new works by Susan Krause. ICONIDOKU is the result of the artist’s impetus to navigate, process, document, and convey the contemporary issues that are the grit of every day life. As a result, Krause has re-contextualized these concerns by way of the popular game, Sudoku, which the artist herself has “reinvented” for a gallery setting. Please join us on Saturday, January 8th at 2pm for Susan Krause’s artist talk and Game Day.
