Mirror Image: An Art Show about Body (Mis) Perceptions

May 21, 22,  & 23, 2010
Curated by Becky Jaffe, Carrie-Andrea Kaye and Lanell Dike

What does your culture, age, gender, and personal identity say about how you should look and relate to your body and the bodies of others?

We have a diverse and exciting group of artists showing their work and sharing their commentary on body image for our upcoming Frisbie St. show on May 21, 22 and 23.

Exhibiting artists:

Myles Boisen * Bruce Temuchin Brown * Mercy Calman * Carrel Crawford * G.M.M. Coghlan * Lauren Davis * Deanne Emmons * JJ Fryzel * Evert Grobbelaar * CJ Grossman * Maia Huang * Becky Jaffe * Molly Kate Taylor * Frank King * Abby Kojola * Matthew Kowalski * Linda Shanti McCabe * Courtney McCutcheon * Elisa Salasin * Michael Slack * Mollee Weaver * Gary Wilson * Scott D.S. Young

We’ll also have live music, spoken word, art activities for kids & adults and of course, community + fun.

Save the date! This show is one weekend only: May 21, 22 and 23.

What do you think defines human beauty – both in terms of the natural physical form and the ways that people choose to adorn or change their bodies?

What is it about a person’s physical being that can create such intense and varied emotional responses in others? How are our emotional responses to human appearance learned (personally and/or culturally) vs. hard-wired?

How do the natural and chosen processes and transformations that people’s bodies go through influence the way you relate to those people?

Mirror Image explores body image and body (mis) perceptions.
