Shadi Al-Atallah | Somatic Markings | Kasmin | NY, USA

November 3 - December 23, 2022
Somatic Markings features seven international artists that employ the nude figure to grapple with issues of contemporary corporeal politics. Incorporating feminist, queer, and postcolonial methodologies that are constitutive of the artists’ personal histories, these works disassemble notions of the traditional nude, transforming the figure into a medium for nuanced discussions that develops on issues of identity or the reclamation of the gaze. Rendered in vivid hues that blur the line between figuration and abstraction, they respond formally with a rejection of the binaries that underscore the logical fallacies of many forms of oppression.
On view at 297 Tenth Avenue from November 3–December 23, 2022 the exhibition includes work by Shadi al-Atallah, Mira Dancy, Miranda Forrester, Elizabeth Glaessner, Anya Kielar, Katherina Olschbaur, and Mark Yang.
