Exhibit: Body Beautiful at Porter Contemporary
Porter Contemporary is pleased to announce Body Beautiful, a group exhibition of seven artists that will both confirm and re-examine our ideas of beauty when it comes to the human form. The exhibition opens to the public with a wine reception with the artists on Thursday, January 12, from 6:30 – 8:30 PM.
Porter / Contemporary has selected artists and works that engage our inherent sense of beauty. The graceful and smooth marble sculptures of Carolina Baptista Rodriguez and the intimate photographs of Sarah Kaufman are juxtapozed with Juliet Foxtrot’s modernized Da Vinci type painted nudes, Jennifer Murray’s half human half animal mixed media works and Catherine Tafur’s disturbing and erotic paintings. Body Beautiful inspires a self-exploration of what defines beauty through different forms and mediums.
