Embodied: Artist as Medium is concerned with the body: with how artists use their own bodies in their work; how the body can be manipulated through pose, costume, or technology to produce meaning; and how society ascribes meaning to bodies. The exhibition seeks to raise questions and prompt new ways of thinking. How does the artist-subject's sex, gender identity, or race impact our readings of their work? What new understandings or possibilities arise because the artist used their own body as subject, medium, material?
