Reflections: Partly Fiction

19 April 2022 - 14 May 2022



WOAW Gallery is pleased to present REFLECTIONS: PARTLY FICTION , a group exhibition curated by Matt Black and Kevin Poon, featuring works by John Armleder, Daniel Crews-Chubb, JPW3, Jordy Kerwick, Leelee Kimmel, Spencer Lewis, Chris Martin, Cristina de Miguel, Julian Schnabel, Pat Steir.

This new exhibition from the REFLECTIONS series titled “PARTLY FICTION” explores the intentional decisions of artists to tell a truth, their truth, or their idea of the truth. As per Barnett Newman, Mark Rothko and Adolph Gottlieb’s manifesto in the New York Times in 1943 “It is our function as artists to make the spectator see the world our way – not his way.” The idea of art from its origins is rooted in the artist attempting to capture what is around them and make it theirs. Art is often a representation of a moment in time through the eyes of the painter, or simply their personal perspective as it relates to the feelings of the social unconsciousness.

It is partly fiction. Through these ten paintings, the artists as narrator explore their individual interpretations of that truth.


Matt Black is a Paris born, New York based Curator, Art Advisor and Filmmaker.

Founder of REFLECTIONS, Matt Black seamlessly intertwines art, film and culture for projects around the world. REFLECTIONS began as an insightful series of films focusing on art world luminaries, produced for the award-winning cultural website NOWNESS. The series, which has profiled Rashid Johnson, Jeff Koons and Takashi Murakami, among many others, captures the vision and inspiration of each globally renowned artist and immerses us in their singular world.

REFLECTIONS: PARTLY FICTION is Matt Black’s first exhibition in Hong Kong in collaboration with Kevin Poon and WOAW Gallery.
