Flex: Sculpting the Self presents a set of works by Scott Burton, Richard Deacon, Jenny Holzer, Christian Jankowski, and Robert Mapplethorpe that pose the body’s potential ability to overcome pervasive political, financial, and health realities in the 1980s. Similar to the ‘80s, an extreme call to fitness, diet, and corporeal control is now occurring alongside a problematic government, economic inflation, and a lacking healthcare system. The exhibition asks - to what end we can regulate ourselves, physically and mentally, against political conditions that dismiss our best interest?
