LAL is set to launch the winter exhibition Artist: Body, presented by QX.net. For this exhibition LAL has invited guest curator Julien Robson, former curator of Contemporary Art at The Speed Museum in Louisville.
Artist: Body takes the concept of a figure show and translates it through the lens of the self-portrait in contemporary art. A compelling survey of the artists’ image of themselves, Robson states, “Throughout the ages, images of the human body have been used by artists, often to explore allegory, beauty and sexuality. Time has witnessed many shifts in the way the body is portrayed and in recent decades, influenced by contemporary thinking and the availability of different visual technologies, artists have increasingly employed themselves as both the subject and object of their works.”
Among others, Artist: Body includes works by Louis Zoellar Bickett, John Coplans, Julius Deutschbauer,Bryce Hudson, Thaniel Ion Lee, Gabriel Martinez, Cynthia Norton, Cindy Sherman, Xaviera Simmons, Kiki Smith, Annie Sprinkle, Hannah Wilke, and Sam Taylor Wood.
