From November 21 to December 18, Christie’s presents Michele Oka Doner: The Shaman’s Hut — 50 Years of Objects from a Ceremonial Life, a private selling exhibition featuring the work of artist Michele Oka Doner (B.S. Des. 1966, MFA 1968).
The exhibition encompasses objects, which span five decades and were hand selected from Oka Doner’s personal collection, serving as a preview into her artistic evolution and the development of her philosophical essay. The Shaman’s Hut includes a sweeping representation of the Oka Doner’s oeuvre, with objects that explore the issues of how we live. Devoted to bringing a heightened awareness into everyday life, Oka Doner’s pieces fill human utilitarian necessities, while bringing significance and grace into everyday rituals.
