February 12th – March 5th
In 2010, Censored was a success. ArtDC developed the show as a response towards public opinions about nudity in local galleries, where invited artists to exhibit figure work which we self-censored.
ArtDC re-tooledl this show and produce censored 2011 with new work and new self-censorship.
Invited artists are: Andrea Hope, Chris Brady, Frank Turner, JM Hoover, Jerry Harke, Jonathan Zuck, Joshuva, Nigil Brice, Pamela Viola, Rahul Saha & Renee Azcra Woodward.
Curator: Renee Azcra Woodward
Gallery owner, Jesse Cohen, says: "Our theme, Censored, is in response to the typical thought process that nudity is taboo. Our intention is to poke fun at the long-running practice of moral and societal censorship of art by covering the genitalia in each work with post-it notes. Visitors will be encouraged to take a sneak peek of what’s going on underneath the notes. The photographers in this show were specially chosen for their work in the areas of fine art nudes and erotica.
The exhibition runs from February 12th – March 5th. The gallery is open by appointment only so please contact gallery owner, Jesse Cohen, at fineartventures[at]gmail.com.
