The exhibition 'A Portrait for Human Presence' by David Kim Whittaker and curated by Joseph Clarke opens on 6 June 2017 at La Fondazione Mudima in Milan, Italy. It will run until 7 July 2017.

‘Portrait for Human Presence’ is an exhibition of new works, offering an overview of a number of key themes that feature in David Kim Whittaker's pantheon of imagery. ‘Journeys of Hope and Despair’ illustrates an exodus, where hope is sustained and salvation is sought on the journey from Damascus. The monumental ‘Perpetual Sin’ triptychs illustrate mankind in conflict, our primal urge to tear apart and destroy, where power and greed cast long shadows, and where the sacred is sacrificed and divinity is lost. And finally ‘The Feminine Oppressed’ is a small series of works where one is urged to contemplate that boys and girls are not always born equal depending on where in the world they originate.

The exhibition also coincides with the launch of a 160-page monograph with texts by Joseph Clarke, David Kim Whittaker and David Rosenberg.
