poster for Shen Wei "Almost Naked"

This event has ended.

Shen Wei’s Almost Naked features portraits of people in America, was photographed during 2003 to 2008. The artist traveled intensively throughout the United States, looking for people who were willing to pose in front his camera, mostly nude in a private setting. As the artist states:” Almost Naked is an exploration of identity and sexuality in American. It is inspired by my upbringing in conservative China, and motivated by my passion to understand the complexity of emotion, desire, introspection and instinct.”

Born and raised in Shanghai, Shen Wei currently lives and works in New York City. He received an MFA in photography, video, and related media from the School of Visual Arts in New York and a BFA in photography from Minneapolis College of Art and Design.
