Objectified: The Female Form and the Male Gaze
February 15-July 7, 2019

This exhibition will ask critical questions about portrayals of the female nude, a prevalent subject throughout European and American art. Do justifications of representing the nude as natural, beautiful, and traditional hold up to critical awareness of the subjugation of women and objectification of their bodies throughout history? How do we reconcile the heroic personae of artists with their mistreatment and abuse of women in their lives, whether models, muses, lovers, or wives?

Women of Distinction
February 5 - June 2, 2019

While the youthful, idealized female nude captivated artists as far back as ancient Greece, others rejected tradition and turned their attentions to beauty beyond the classical ideal. This exhibition highlights portraits of nine women from the 16th–20th centuries, both in print and photograph, with subjects ranging from young to mature, from humble to affluent, from famous to nameless. All are linked by the emphasis on the subject’s remarkable character, imparting the beauty reflected in their strength, wisdom, and life experience.
