Subject Matter at Philips Exeter

{ Friday, November 17th – Saturday, February 3rd } Anna Haber and others explore Possible Subject Positions at Philips Exeter.

Subjects—what’s the deal with those things, anyway? Anna Schuleit HaberMaud Bryt, Merill Comeau, Adriane Herman, Elena Kovylina, Tracie Morris, and Alison Saar will all offer some sort of answer (or at least consider the question) at the Lamont Gallery at Philips Exeter Academy in Possible Subject Positions, a new exhibition on view from November 17th to February 3rd. The show addresses the subject’s transitory, poetic qualities and how they’re embedded in our gestures, shapes, languages, and material culture. Spanning art styles and substances, Possible Subject Positions will certainly make you take a seat and reckon with its … subject. Says Haber of her work for the show: “The paintings I’m interested in have nothing to do with the world of ideas. I want them to remain rich in stuff, in shapes, in textures, but doggedly story-less.”

The painting might be story-less, but this exhibition’s visitors surely will not be. An opening reception for Possible Subject Positions is scheduled for Friday, November 17 from 5:30-7:30 p.m.
