Art Theory & Practice Senior Show

By: Diana Chang, Michael Gross, Lynn Lochlynn, Olivia Peace, An Phung, Darien R Wendell 

Can you send me a naked picure of yourself? Do you think I look good? Do you even want me? Wanna streak with me? Can you see that puckered scar on my left ass cheek? How old are you? Who will see this? How is a bathroom selfie different from the birth of venus? Will you bury that mangled body naked 6ft deep? Can you show me what you are proud of, and can you prove yourself as the object of my desire?

NUDES? is a group exhibition that features the vulnerabilities of six senior undergraduates in the Department of Art Theory & Practice. Occupied with the act of uncovering, these student-artists present the scars, memories, contradictions and consequences of putting it all out there for the world to see.

Exhibit: May 12 to June 18

Dittmar Memorial Gallery, established in 1972, is a student-operated gallery that enlightens and challenges the Northwestern University community with the works of emerging and underrepresented artists from the Chicago area and the Midwest. The staff at Dittmar is dedicated to developing and fostering the Northwestern community’s awareness of the changing attitudes and trends in the art world. We invite artists who work in the contemporary vein, as well as artists who offer an alternative perspective that hinges on the periphery of the art world. In essence, our goal is to provide well-deserved exposure to those outside or on the margins of the mainstream art world.
