Carey Young: Appearance

by Modern Art Oxford | Oxford
Date of event: 25/03/23 - 02/07/23

In this major new exhibition, Carey Young (b. 1970, lives and works in London) focuses her astute vision on female identity. Her works depict women working in law and industry, and invite viewers into new perceptions of systemic power, gender and justice. 

The exhibition includes a new video installation, Appearance (2023), a slow-motion portrait of female judges, along with The Vision Machine (2020), Young’s inventive exploration of female identity in relation to photography and cinema. Palais de Justice (2017) is a dreamlike evocation of a court or legal system run by women. Alongside the films, a selection of Young’s compelling text and photographic works will connect law, power and visual culture.
