The Body: Altered/Adorned

Exhibition Dates: Nov. 30 – February 3, 2019
with an opening reception Friday, Nov. 30 from 6 – 9pm.

Through time immemorial and through a variety of means and methods, humans have altered, modified, constricted, extended, and aided our bodies. These modifications may be enacted to fit a social norm or to set oneself apart, to adorn or restrict, to create a “better” body. The work showcased in The Body: Altered/Adorned explore the idea of the manipulate body, through the use of sourced materials that once had a function or context related to the body or through the creation of objects that modify or alter the body itself.
