The Figure Untamed: Desire as Resistance
Exhibition Dates: January 24 – March 11, 2012
Curated by Valerie Gilman and Darren Lee Miller
Opening Reception: Wednesday, January 25, 7-9PM
Bodies are seen, experienced, and represented through a nexus of powerful cultural taboos designed to regulate pleasure. This exhibition features artworks by Heyd Fontenot (Dallas, TX), Erin Finley (Toronto, ON), and Keira Sunshine Norton (Bloomington, IN) that locate power in pleasure, celebrate sensuality of form, and show the human figure without the usual controlling devices of modesty, shame, and fear.
