The Body is Present: Negotiating Expectations considers bodies in multiple forms. By making use of strategies such as exaggeration, abstraction, abject form, and humor, these works subvert ideals of strength and aesthetic purity, thereby illustrating their permeability. Navigating the exhibition becomes a means for reflecting on the many ways by which physical and emotional presence can be reached: color can be louder than scale, surface can be more immediate than form, the indeterminate can be more visible than the finite.
