DESCRIPTION

Stephen Friedman Gallery is pleased to present ‘Strike a Pose' - a group exhibition of emerging and established international artists. A diverse selection of two and three dimensional works, both figurative and abstract, explores the physical, psychological and conceptual implications of the ‘pose'.

The exhibition asks us to consider questions of identity, performance, artifice, appropriation and intent. The formal concerns explored by these artists such as figuration, gesture, abstract assertions and physical interconnections, encourage an awareness of the body in time and space. Classical modes of representation as well as more complex propositions reveal the pose as an ambiguous, self-conscious form.

Bringing together a playful and inquisitive selection of work, the exhibition offers an opportunity to consider the implications of the 'pose' across formal and conceptual territory.
