The Art Gallery presents "Modernity Stripped Bare" a examination of how bodies mediate interpersonal relationships.
The Art Gallery at the University of Maryland is excited to present an exhibition of the work of five photographers currently living and working in Japan who have chosen to use the nude to examine how our bodies mediate interpersonal relationships.
The exhibition, titled "Modernity Stripped Bare: Undressing the Nude in Contemporary Japanese Photography", will feature photographs by Ryoko Suzuki, Yurie Nagashima, Ryudai Takano, Riichi Yamaguchi, and Manabu Yamanaka. These works confront a wide range of issues including gender, sexuality, physical deformation, ageing, and isolation.
The public opening reception for the exhibition will be held on Wednesday, March 16 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. With the exception of the University of Maryland’s spring break from March 21–March 26, the exhibition will be open to the public through Saturday, April 23, 2011.
