First Friday Art Walk Opening Reception: January 4, 5-9pm
Show: January 4-26, 2019
Art museums around the world are filled with images and representations of the human figure. Some of the Western world’s most famous and compelling works depict people, both clothed and unclothed. It usually goes unnoticed that the art has a disproportionate amount of female figures compared to male ones, especially nude forms.
Angst Gallery showcases the male form at the beginning of each year in order to bring more balance to the equation. We see this as an opportunity to appreciate the male body for what it is–natural, beautiful, and worthy of aesthetic examination–while also acknowledging the gender imbalance in the art world, both behind the scenes as well as in the work being displayed in museums and galleries. The show will include depictions of the male form in various media.
