2019 04 The Femaile Nude Ways of Seeing web

The Female Nude: Ways of Seeing exhibition opens 10th May 2019
A challenging appraisal of the female nude will open shortly at the University of Kent’s Studio 3 Gallery.

‘The Female Nude: Ways of Seeing’ – will focus on the representation of the female nude throughout art history, rethinking how the nude reinforces gender stereotypes. And it will raise questions of contemporary debate such as feminism, body image and identity.

The exhibition will run from the 10th May – 26th May 2019, from Monday until Friday 10:00 – 17:00. Confirmed artists include: Pablo Picasso, Honoré Daumier, Ellen von Wiegand, Guerilla Girls, Ian Hamilton Finlay, Jim Dine, John Piper, Julian Opie, Marilene Oliver.

Co-author and curator of ‘The Female Nude: Ways of Seeing’, Carola D’Ambrosio said:
“The exhibition will stand as a visual statement of the progression taking place within the world of art but also as reflective of wider cultural attitudes. Movements such as the #MeToo and Times Up have spread widely in the last year, and there is a constant attention reserved for the narrative of the female body which is not yet fully explored in the medium of print. In highlighting these outlooks we aim to rethink the female nude and encourage viewers to experience the subject from a range of different perspectives.”

‘The Female Nude: Ways of Seeing’ will be the eighth exhibition to run as part of the University’s School of Art’s award-winning module ‘Print Collecting and Curating’, organized solely by undergraduate students. It will exhibit works from the Kent Print Collection, established in 2005.
