“A Body of Work”
November 8 – 19th
323 Canal St. New York, NY
“A Body of Work,” features twelve contemporary female artists whose work engages with the representation of the female form in art. The shape of women’s bodies, specifically when nude, has long been a key part of art history. This exhibition seeks to showcase the power females have when they exercise autonomy over their bodies. Not only are women’s nudes put on display, but their narratives become public as well. Feminine bodies have often been celebrated as works of art, but are simultaneously sexualized and shamed by the public. In the era of the #MeToo movement, abortion bans in states around the country, and violent cases of sexual assault that lead to traumatic trials, we need spaces like “A Body of Work” to show that powerful women will not stop using their voices to make a difference.

Through mixed media, performance, painting, photography, and sculpture, these twelve female artists take back ownership of their own bodies and the narratives around them. Art has long been a form of altering perceptions and social norms: A Body of Work seeks to provide a platform for women’s voices to be heard louder, both artists and viewers alike.
The exhibit, on view from November 8 – November 19, features the works of Lynn Bianchi, Indira Cesarine, Anna Cone, Bambou Gili, Rebecca Goyette, Joanna Grochowska, Joanne Leah, Miranda Morris, Qinza Najm, Leah Schrager, and Nichole Washington. The exhibition is free and open to the public from 11 AM to 6:30 PM during its run. 10% of all proceeds from art sold will be donated to charities focused on female health and representation.
