Thursday Art Talk: The Body Electric
Join The Body Electric exhibition curators Shaun Lakin and Anne O’Hehir in conversation with program producer Celeste Aldahn.
The Body Electric presents the work of women-identifying artists on the subjects of sex, pleasure and desire. The exhibition features key works by some of the pioneers of photography and video, including Polly Borland’s bodies wrapped in stockings, Nan Goldin’s personal and candid images of friends and a video by Cheryl Donegan examining clichés of women’s sexuality. The images in this exhibition show how sex, love and loss are an animating part of the human experience.
The Body Electric exhibition is Know My Name project supported by the Medich Foundation.
