The Figure Untamed: Desire as Resistance, ALLEGHENY COLLEGE, January 24 – March 11, 2012

Bodies are seen, experienced, and represented through a nexus of powerful cultural taboos designed to regulate pleasure. This exhibition features artworks by Heyd Fontenot (Dallas, TX), Erin Finley (Toronto, ON), and Keira Sunshine Norton (Bloomington, IN) that locate power in the sensual, celebrate the human form, and show the nude figure without the usual controlling devices of modesty, shame, and fear.
