From a female-identifying perspective

30 female-identifying artists from 20 different countries diversely explore the female-identifying gaze in this exhibition centered on the naked body in contemporary photography.

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 of photography, film, and installation, 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-identifying perspective.
