EXPOSED: THE CONTEMPORARY NUDE
Art never tires of the nude. Photographic fads and styles come and go, but the nude, as a form of artistic expression, always remains fresh. From Alfred Stieglitz to Robert Mapplethorpe, from Edward Weston to Diane Arbus the nude never fails to captivate us.
This month 1650 Gallery brings a collection of renditions of the photographic nude.
45 works have be chosen from submitted photographs to be included in the EXPOSED exhibition at 1650 Gallery in the Echo Park neighborhood of Los Angeles. Additional works have also be selected for an online annex.
