      The Body: Concealing and Revealing

      Drawn from the museum's collection, this exhibition examines the ways in which artists have used the human body as a provocative tool of expression. Cropped, abstracted, veiled, and even erased, fragmented figures depicted in works by artists as varied as Alexander Archipenko, Bill Jacobson, John Singer Sargent, Beverly Semmes, Edward Weston, and Francesca Woodman suggest that the part is often more evocative than the whole. Avoiding precise likenesses and full disclosure, the artists gathered here employ blurred forms, truncated torsos, masked faces, and empty dresses to variously present the body as a site for not only visual experimentation, but also defining individual identity, constructing and challenging notions of gender and sexuality, and negotiating power.
