Present Being

Samara Contemporary announces Present Being, a group exhibition
Opening: October 26th 2019, 4-8PM Exhibition Dates: October 26th - November 24th 2019
SAMARA Contemporary is pleased to announce Present Being, a group exhibition which confronts historical tendencies to objectify bodies through a western patriarchal lens. Whether sex workers, servants or angelical mother figures, western art frequently presented female subjects as the object in artwork. For this exhibition, a group of contemporary artists reflect upon the hyper-sexualization of female figures through the dominant male gaze in history, and also the lack of representation of body and gender diversity. Through a variety of different media, this group of female empowered artists aim to reposition the traditional western gaze, and reclaim the gendered body.

Our core mission is to embrace and support the work of national and international contemporary creators working in the field of art + design.
