As part of our 2019 Summer Program, the Red Head Gallery is pleased to present, Manifestation, a group exhibition curated by Heather Riley.
Manifestation consists of work that explores contemporary representations of the human body through a variety of mediums. These works reference canonical representations of the human figure, while exploring new and unconventional ways that the body exists within space, time, and history. The body has inherent ideas and preconceptions attached to it, both from art and social history. The evidence of bodily involvement in the making of a work is so highly valued, that even its absence has a sense of being. Each of the artists presents a different understanding of physicality, and through action and object, they reflect on the presence and absence of the body in their work.
