Gray Matters is a multifaceted survey of 37 contemporary women artists working in the surprisingly vibrant space between—and including—black and white. The exhibition is the first organized by Michael Goodson since he assumed the role of Senior Curator of Exhibitions at the Wex, and the survey enriches a calendar year of programming in which every artist featured in our galleries is a woman.
This exhibition will feature works by Tacita Dean, Cristina Iglesias and Julie Mehretu.

Titled JULIE MEHRETU: A UNIVERSAL HISTORY OF EVERYTHING AND NOTHING, this exhibition presents 20 years of Mehretu’s paintings and drawings that have continued to redefine the way we think of painting as an instrument for mapping the world in time and space.
The exhibition is organized by Fundação de Serralves - Museu de Arte Contemporânea, and Fundación Botín. The exhibition at Serralves Museu de Arte Contemporânea is curated by Suzanne Cotter and the exhibition at Fundación Botín is curated by Vicente Todoli.
