James Wilson: Social Studies

July 29, 2022November 6, 2022

 “Social Studies” is an exhibition of 48 large format black & white photographs by one of New Brunswick’s most accomplished artists, James Wilson. It is a portrait project that constitutes a permanent social record and visual time capsule of who we are as New Brunswickers at the turn of the 21st century. The diverse subjects – ordinary New Brunswickers – come from all parts of the province and from all walks of life. As a profoundly human record of who we are as a society at this particular time and in this particular place, it is a powerful and sometimes challenging visual document.

"Social Studies" was included in Art Canada Institute’s Canadian Showstoppers Summer Exhibitions to See. You can check it out here:

Curated by John Leroux and organized by the Beaverbrook Art Gallery. This exhibition was supported by Commercial Properties Ltd.
