SLATE contemporary presents a plot twist with its early summer exhibition, Mystery & Narrative. Featuring photography by Michael Garlington and Danielle Mourning, and paintings by Monique Crine and GR Martin, Mystery & Narrative brings the figure to the foreground in a series of dramatic scenes that beckon the viewer in, but refuse to reveal themselves easily. A cloak of mystery pervades the exhibition, with one’s sense of what is ‘real’ and possible perpetually at play. Drawing upon the tropes of theater, from staged sets to dramatic characters, each artwork offers a rich performance, channeling history and fiction in varying proportions.
