Fotografiska New York : NUDE


Fotografiska New York presents NUDE, a new exhibition centered on the naked body in contemporary photography. Featuring the work of 30 female-identifying artists from 20 different countries, NUDE is a collection of images that portray the body through beautiful, disruptive, and experimental lenses, seeking to subvert the historically predominant male gaze and celebrate the human form.

NUDE addresses the centuries-long fascination with the naked body, and explores the balance between “the nude” as an idealized form versus an honest, natural, and personal artistic expression. In this exhibition of over 200 works, the viewer receives a comprehensive global view of what the body means, how it is used, and what it tells us about modern society from a female perspective.

The exhibition is organized by Amanda Hajjar (Director of Exhibitions at Fotografiska New York) and Johan Vikner (Director of Global Exhibitions at Fotografiska). Said Vikner:

Unlike painting, photography is not a medium that has been “owned” by men for centuries. In art, we have mostly been presented with the same kind of nude through our modern Western history. A consideration most often decided and depicted by men, for an audience of men. This collection of contemporary female artists using the nude body as their language, be it their own or others, for the sake of art, beauty, representation, self-expression, as a subject and object, is an example of what this new nude is and what it looks like.
