Near Fine (damp stains to the first few pages, else Fine).


As the title suggests, Bruce and Norman Yonemoto's work investigates the intersections between personal and cultural memory, material culture and the myths we build and preserve about ourselves and our histories. Focusing on their shared Japanese-American identity, the artists' collaborative works offer a unique glimpse into the spaces and contents of memory, matter and modern romance.
