This presentation will feature artists and members of the Fine Arts Faculty of Dawson College: Giuseppe Di Leo, Rachel Echenberg, Frank Mulvey, Shelley Reeves, Kristi Ropeleski and Lorraine Simms. They will present Six Views on the Human Body, explaining how they explore the human body in their work. This presentation will be a lively and varied ninety minutes of images and insights, with time for a question and answer period at the end.
Here are the artists' points of departure for their presentations:
“I explore the human body as an emblematic form measuring my implication in the human condition.”
“I explore the human body as a physical site from which to map out the flows, shifts and ruptures of social and individual space”
"I explore the human body as both a counterpoint and a complement to surrounding elements."
(To see a video adaptation of Frank's presentation on November 21, 2012, click here.)
"I explore the human body as an expression of mind."
“I explore the human body as an individual and a representation.”
“I explore the human body as a site for transformation.”
