WAG visitors viewing A Portrait of David, 1994. Winnipeg Art Gallery.
A Portrait of David, a photographic exhibition by the Winnipeg-born conceptual artist Micah Lexier, opens on January 30.
The exhibition consists of 75 large prints of a different male subject named David, each image showing a particular “David” at a different age, from one to 75. The WAG provides assistance to the artist in gathering subjects and organizing photography shoots. WAG photographer Sheila Spence provides the technical skill, photographing the portraits under Lexier’s supervision. The exhibition also includes a selection of Lexier’s earlier work.
