BODY UTOPIA creates a visionary space that honors ideas and representations of the nonconforming body – a body that does not subscribe to cultural ideals, whether through size, age, disability, ethnicity, gender presentation, or “queer”, self-chosen, outlier identity. The exhibition features photography by Chitra Ganesh and Pinar Yolaçan; sculpture by Constantina Zavitsanos; painting and drawing by Clarity Haynes and Riva Lehrer; and video by Sondra Perry.
BODY UTOPIA embodies an inclusive feminist point of view and invites questions, such as: what does it mean to represent a disabled body? A survivor’s body? What is discovered through the exploration of seemingly oppositional states such as trauma, sexual agency, and spirituality?
