ART, SEX & CENSORSHIP - "SECRET GARDEN: THE FEMALE GAZE ON EROTICA" ARTIST TALK + RECEPTION
Join The Untitled Space on Thursday July 20th for a Reception and Artist Talk from 6-9pm for exhibit SECRET GARDEN on The Female Gaze on Erotica, Sex Positive Art & Censorship, hosted by artist and curator Indira Cesarine along with exhibiting artists Myla DalBesio, Leah Schrager, Julia Fox, Katie Commodore, Annika Connor, Dominique Vitali, Kristin Prim, Katya Zvereva, Taira Rice and Rowan Renee.
The Untitled Space gallery is pleased to present “SECRET GARDEN: The Female Gaze on Erotica” a group exhibition of female identifying artists exploring figurative works of nudes and erotic art. Curated by Indira Cesarine, the exhibit will be on view from June 27 – July 30 and will include works of painting, drawing, photography, printmaking, pottery, sculpture, collage, mixed media and video. The exhibit title is inspired by the book, “My Secret Garden” published in 1973 by sex positive feminist author Nancy Friday who was instrumental in addressing taboos revolving around female sexuality in the early 70s and an important figure of the feminist sexual liberation movement. Through historical works of pioneering feminist artists such as Betty Tompkins and Joan Semmel, to that of emerging contemporary female artists such as Andrea Mary Marshall, Myla Dalbesio, India Munuez, Katie Commodore, and Leah Schrager, SECRET GARDEN presents works by taboo shattering artists who fearlessly address sexual themes in their art and celebrate freedom of expression.
Through their own visual narrative, the artists of SECRET GARDEN explore works that challenge stereotypes, celebrate femininity and reclaim sexual independence. The female perspective on the theme is at once visible through the subtle details as these artists define in their own terms the language of “erotic”. They engage a dialogue of sexual self-empowerment that pushes social and political boundaries with artworks that exemplify a new wave of women’s sexual liberation in art.
