> DESCRIPTION

"FLESH ART," an exhibition simultaneously presented within both the Harold B. Lemmerman Gallery and Visual Arts Gallery, will feature work by a dozen artists that employ flesh as subject-matter and demonstrate the realm of possibilities in negotiating figuration and abstraction. Curated by NJCU art historian, Dr. José Rodeiro, this multimedia exhibition explores how selected artists delve into the meaning and implications of flesh on many levels through painting, sculpture, photography, installation, and video. This unique exhibition will feature three never before seen paintings by renowned painter, Joan Semmel, who, since the early-1970s, has created innovative flesh-based paintings and is considered a pivotal figure in Flesh Art. Also featured are NJCU's eminent retired professor Ben Jones, who is a prominent figure in African-American art and NJCU professor and acclaimed sculptor Herb Rosenberg. The exhibition is greatly diversified by original works by Rutgers' professor and internationally active painter, Hanneline Røgeberg; strikingly visceral installation and multimedia works by Babs Reingold of Bayonne, NJ; intimate oil paintings by Jen Mazza of Brooklyn, NY; Cityscapes incorporating flesh in media by John Hardy of New York, NY; and video art by Giuseppe Satta of Italy. Furthermore, works by NJCU alumni, Matthew Lahm, William Coronado, Sandra Silva and Olga Cruz, demonstrate a legacy of "FLESH ART."
