" “for now we see through a glass, darkly.” The phrase is broadly interpreted as meaning that mankind has an imperfect perception of reality. However, an alternative interpretation – as advocated by Nolan – would emphasize that we are living in dark times. For this exhibition, Nolan’s literary analysis is applied to the realm of contemporary visual art. The phrase is interpreted literally through artists that use or depict dark mirrors or glass in various forms in their work; metaphorically through artists who depict a dark worldview or personal view; or a combination of the two.
