Interview with curator William A. Ewing

Wegman’s world may revolve around his dogs, but his choice of sets, costumes and props betray a fascination with art history. And yet, is it all really about dogs? Exhibition Curator, William A. Ewing suggests otherwise: ‘these performers are us and we are them: housewife, astronaut, lawyer, priest, farm worker, even a dog walker! Some pose proudly and with confidence, others express doubts or vulnerabilities. It’s all about being human.’

William Wegman: Being Human is open from 7 December 2018 until 17 March 2019 at NGV International.
