The Coming of Age is dedicated to the memory of one of its exhibitors,
Will Jones (1991-2022), who died suddenly on 11th February 2022.
"Society cares about the individual only insofar as he is profitable. The young know this. Their anxiety as they enter upon social life matches the anguish of the old as they are excluded from it".
- Simone de Beauvoir
Simone de Beauvoir's The Coming of Age allows us to think of youth and old age, the journey to adulthood, and cross-generational views. This exhibition, rather than focusing only on practical, physical issues, examines the existential, philosophical problem of how we are in the world at any age.
