An exhibition of seven paintings by contemporary British artist Celia Paul (born 1959), the eponymously titled “Celia Paul” is curated by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Hilton Als, staff writer and theater critic for The New Yorker and associate professor of writing at Columbia University. Featuring work selected by Als in collaboration with the artist as a testament to their transatlantic friendship, “Celia Paul” focuses on Paul’s recent paintings, which address the themes of memory, family, and the inner lives of women. The exhibition was the inaugural installment in 2018 of a trilogy at the Yale Center for British Art; the next two exhibitions in the series there will focus on the work of Lynette Yiadom-Boakye in 2019 and Njideka Akunyili Crosby in 2020.

This exhibition has been curated by Hilton Als, and organized by the Yale Center for British Art, in collaboration with The Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens. It is made possible by generous support from Victoria Miro, London/Venice and Laura and Carlton Seaver.
