JUNE 1ST // 6-9PM
THE UNTITLED SPACE
45 Lispenard Street Unit 1W
“In The Raw: The Female Gaze on the Nude,” the critically acclaimed exhibit by The Untitled Space, curated by Indira Cesarine and Coco Dolle, has been extended by popular demand until June 4th. Additionally, on June 1st, from 6-9pm the gallery will present a special performance of an original piece by renowned dancer, actor, and performance artist Katherine Crockett. Titled “The (Re)Birth of Venus”, the performance will take place at the gallery in an exclusive reception with artists and curators of the exhibit also present.
Katherine recently starred as the Queen in the Off-Boadway hit “Queen of the Night,” an immersive theater experience, for which she created and choreographed her part. In the leading role, she not only dances but also acts and intimately engages with audience members. Since opening in 2013 the show has come to be known as one of New York’s hottest tickets.
Crockett is a former Principal Dancer with The Martha Graham Dance Company. She has performed with Mikhail Baryshnikov as a guest soloist with his White Oak Dance Company and she has also been a featured performer in works by Robert Wilson, Martha Clarke, Yvonne Rainer, Susan Stroman, Lucinda Childs, Richard Move as well as on the runways of Alexander McQueen and John Galliano.”
Exhibit “In The Raw: The Female Gaze On The Nude” features 20 female artists and their intimate vision on the nude and includes works of photography, painting, sculpture, mixed media and video. Throughout history the nude has been the muse of countless artists, yet for the most part, until recently, that perspective has been predominately male. The past several decades have ushered in a new era of powerful female visual storytellers, who focus on their own personal experiences as women, and embrace a vision of the nude that is brave and honest. Each artist brings her own voice to the forefront, whether channeled through an autobiographical point of view, whimsical, raw or erotic lens, it remains fearlessly uncensored.
“In The Raw” Exhibiting artists include: Amanda Charchian, Aneta Bartos, Annika Connor, Coco Dolle, Elisa Garcia de la Huerta, Ellen Jong, Indira Cesarine, Jennifer Caviola, Katya Zvereva, Kelsey Bennett, Leah Schrager, Logan White, Loretta Mae Hirsch, Lynn Bianchi, Maria Kreyn, Marianna Rothen, Marie Tomanova, Meredith Ostrom, Sophia Wallace and Victoria de Lesseps.
