Creativity Explored, a premier nonprofit visual arts center for artists with developmental disabilities, presents Exposed, a six-artist exhibition exploring and celebrating the human form.
Gallery and Exhibitions Manager Amy Auerbach and Gallery Associate Stephanie Rudd co-curated the exhibition, which highlights the work of artists who routinely represent the nude figure in various media. The exhibition’s theme was particularly inspired by Antonio Benjamin, whose extensive work in the genre was recently recognized with a book, Book of Nudes, published by Books for All Press. The exhibition also includes artwork in a variety of media by Andrew Bixler, Camille Holvoet, Jose Nunez, Thomas Pringle, and Kate Thompson.
While the exhibition is not overtly sexual per se, Auerbach and Rudd do hope that audiences will consider the experiences of people with developmental disabilities vis-a-vis nudity and sexuality. “People might not necessarily expect artists with disabilities to think about this topic, but there’s no reason why having a developmental disability stops you from thinking about sexuality and nudity,” Auerbach says.
