Paul Emmanuel: Transitions

Thursday, September 8-Sunday, October 2

A touring solo exhibition by the South African, comprises a series of five "photographic" works which, when examined closely, are revealed to be sensitively hand drawn, photo -realist sequences of images. These film like progressions obsessively capture moments of five transitory stages in life. They depict unidentifiable male subjects of varying ages, sometimes in traditional institutions, like the military, as well as religious and secular institutions, which have shaped the way in which the male identity has been defined.  For more details, please see Internationally-Acclaimed "Paul Emmanuel: Transitions" Visits MICA, Sept. 8-Oct. 2
