“BODY BEAUTIFUL”

A Group Show Curated by Indira Cesarine

OPENING RECEPTION: November 21, 2019

Press Preview 4pm – 6pm // Opening Reception 6pm - 9pm

EXHIBITION ON VIEW: November 21 – December 14, 2019

THE UNTITLED SPACE: 45 Lispenard Street, NYC 10013

The Untitled Space is pleased to present group exhibition, BODY BEAUTIFUL, featuring works by 50 contemporary artists celebrating body positivity. Curated by gallery director Indira Cesarine, the exhibit will open on November 21st, 2019 and will be on view through December 14th, 2019. BODY BEAUTIFUL will feature artworks across a variety of mediums including painting, drawing, photography, video, and sculpture that highlight the power of the figure. Throughout the canon of art history the human figure has been a central theme, as we grapple with our own existence, feeding a desire to self-represent and to understand our place in the universe. This exhibition will present works by contemporary artists who address the figure not just as an object of beauty, or a subject of anatomy, but rather elaborate on body positive depictions of the human form, including all body types, ages, and genders, celebrating diversity as well as the timeless beauty of the body. The Untitled Space is honored to raise funds for Art4Equality through this exhibition, an initiative that supports the creation of empowering gender equality themed exhibitions and public art.

What is Body Positivity? The body-positive movement, which dates back to early Victorian reforms against the corset, 1960s initiatives against fat-shaming, and more recently via social media with influencers challenging unrealistic standards of beauty, is “rooted in the belief that all human beings should have a positive body image, while challenging the ways in which society presents and views the physical body. The goal of the movement is to address unrealistic beauty standards and to build the confidence of oneself and others. The movement sets forth the notion that beauty is a construct of society, and poses that this construct should not infringe upon one's ability to feel confidence or self-worth. The movement states that neither fat-shaming nor skinny-shaming is acceptable, and that all body types can and should be celebrated.”
