Celia Paul at YCBA
Tuesday, April 3, 2018
Sunday, August 12, 2018
The Center will present an exhibition of work by the contemporary British artist Celia Paul (b. 1959) in spring 2018, the first in a series of three successive exhibitions curated by the Pulitzer Prize-winning author Hilton Als. This exhibition, specially selected by Als in collaboration with the artist and a deeply personal testament to their transatlantic friendship, will focus on Paul’s recent works, which will explore intimacy and inwardness. Als’s subsequent installments at the Center will feature works of Lynette Yiadom-Boakye in 2019 and an artist to be selected later this year, who will be shown in 2020.
Following the final exhibition, the Center will publish a volume of Als’s personal reflections on the three artists.
