Philemona Williamson: Metaphorical Narratives
September 16–January 7 2018
Metaphysical Narratives is the first museum retrospective of nationally renowned, Montclair-based contemporary artist Philemona Williamson. Williamson’s mysterious paintings primarily feature adolescents of indeterminate age, gender, and ethnicity, caught in awkward enigmatic moments, which seduce the viewer into a labyrinth of open-ended questions. Primarily spotlighting these metaphorically rich narrative paintings, the exhibition is accompanied by two site-specific installations illuminating the artist’s creative process.
