Opening 7 June, Somaya Critchlow will exhibit her work in They Gaze, a group exhibition at James Fuentes, New York. 

“What happens when the gaze isn’t the omnipotent gaze of the artist or anonymous viewer—usually male—but the subject of the painting itself? What happens when the painting gazes back and questions its audience? If the gaze emanates from a position of alterity and not authority, is the viewer more or less shaken?” – Jamieson Webster

The exhibition will run from 7 June – 19 July 2019.
