* Metaphors on Aging

Metaphors on Aging

Juror: Pamela Allen, Managing Curator: Mary McBride

Aging affects everyone in many different ways. Through the use of a wide variety of visual metaphors, these 35 works show the impact of aging on our lives: three generations sharing a cup of tea, a decaying leaf, an empty chair. These poignant images draw you in and challenge assumptions about aging.

Metaphors on Aging was SAQA’s first major exhibition to travel to Africa. It was displayed at 13 venues on three continents and our estimate is that it was viewed by over 100,000 people during its travels.
