MASS Gallery presents "Proxemics" opening reception
MASS Gallery will present "Proxemics," an exhibition featuring six artists who wield the human body as a tool for communication through character creation, distortion, and documentation. The artists include Ben Aqua (Austin), Felipe Baeza (Brooklyn, New York), Xavier Schipani (Austin), Silky Shoemaker (Oakland, California), riel Sturchio (Austin), and Jaimie Warren (Brooklyn, New York).
Bodies, selves, others, and other selves are presented in unrestricted and unapologetic forms. These figures take up space, and new contexts are laid bare. Representations transcend classic depictions of the human form, investigating perceptions of assumed, controlled, or reclaimed identity. In proximity to each other, the work in Proxemics examines how a body may be critiqued or claimed, presented or perceived.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be display through February 24.
