Bare: Photographs and Oral Histories on the Nude

The Carrack Modern Art | August 12-24, 2014

Exhibit information: The Carrack Modern Art

The human body has been inspiring art since the dawn of humankind.  It was our first artistic subject, yet, 40,000 years later, it still captivates and inspires us all the same. The artistic nude is nearly universal, having traversed the river of time across social, cultural, linguistic and physical borders. As we gain a better understanding of why we as a species are compelled to make artwork inspired by the body, and why we as a modern society react to that artwork the way we do, we might better understand humanity as a whole. Through photography and interviews, Dan Smith explores the reaction to the art nude and how those reactions impact the experiences and identities of those currently involved in creating and/or experiencing art.
