DC Moore Gallery is pleased to present Embodiment, a group exhibition spotlighting new explorations in figurative painting by four emerging artists: Louis Fratino, Cindy Ji Hye Kim, Danielle Orchard, and Michael Stamm. The exhibition will be on view from November 9th through December 22nd.
The way we conceive of “the body” has dramatically shifted since the turn of the new millennium. Gender, sexuality, and personal identity—all subjects that pertain to the corporeal and have long been considered taboo in certain public forums —are now a growing part of an ever more candid national conversation on human rights. These artists, all raised in the 1980s and 1990s, are at the forefront of this discussion, questioning common tropes of figurative art and exploring what it means to embody a human vessel.
