Judith Shea (MFA Senior Critic) in Exhibit at National Academy Museum, NY, Opening July 8

Reconfiguring the Body in American Art 1820-2009

The National Academy Museum

Exhibition Dates: July 8 - November 15

"Reconfiguring the Body in American Art 1820-2009 examines the critical role the figure has played in art of the United States over the past 200 years. Installed chronologically and thematically, the exhibition will illustrate how the body has been central to the artist from formal portraiture, genre painting, and modernist devises of deconstructing the figure. A section of contemporary work by younger artists will show how the figure continues to be relevant for artists today."
