Odd Bodies: Selections from the Permanent Collection

  • Jan 24, 2010 – Apr 18, 2010
Installation view: Weatherspoon Art Museum, 2010.

The human body is a source of endless artistic inspiration. Many artists have created fantastical or abject representations of the body, often symbolizing it through severed limbs or disembodied anatomical parts. Other artists experiment with media and form to tap into social and psychological issues connected to the body. Odd Bodies includes work from the Weatherspoon’s permanent collection by Janine Antoni, Rona Pondick, Hiram Williams, LoCurto/Outcault, Mika Rottenberg, and other artists who delve into imaginative and, sometimes, bizarre examinations of the relationship between body and mind.

We have six galleries located on the first and second levels of the museum, view our gallery map.
