"Naked!" Exhibition

Paul Kasmin Gallery

poster for "Naked!" Exhibition

This event has ended.

A Summer exhibition of sundry flesh- "naked" is not nude nor "naturalist"- it is altogether more intriguing, predicating perhaps a state of desire, whether narcissistic or voyeuristic, that sense of being naked as an active, self-conscious sense of heightened awareness if not arousal. While nudity is continuously represented in the history of art, the classical nude often pretends to itself that it is not just plain naked. Of course, anyone can tell the difference, can feel it on their own skin indeed. While nudity, in its mythological and even mystic beauty is to be appreciated, this exhibition will present the naked– traditionally arousing, interpreted by myriad artists.
