Susan Metrican
No Head No Tail

September 13 - October 20, 2023
Mazmanian Gallery | Framingham State University

Thai-American artist, Susan Metrican will present an exhibition in Mazmanian Gallery located on the main floor of the McCarthy Center at Framingham State University, 100 State Street, Framingham, MA. Metrican explores motifs that have been translated across multiple formats; folktales, textiles, architecture, and small useful objects which allow the symbols and characters to connect and continue “traveling” through time and space. She considers the movement of interpreted ideas onto various forms across national borders and throughout history, and their shape-shifting reanimation as they introduce new modes of being. Fluid approaches to form, flatness and image address this multiplicity, as the artist’s lived experience mingles with her subjects’ own trajectories.

There will be an Opening Reception for the artist at 3:30 p.m. on Wednesday, September 13, 2023 in the gallery, followed by an artist’s talk at 4:30 p.m. in the Alumni Room, adjacent to the gallery. The talk will be a hybrid in-person/zoom offering. Zoom Registration link
