Body Language

April 12, 2019 - May 26, 2019

April 12 – May 26

How is body language represented, depicted and interpreted? It is readable? Is it natural or affected, subliminal or known? Is it political? Historical? What is it telling us about this contemporary moment? Body Language is an exhibition that explores this form of non-verbal communication through visual representation. It speaks to multiple generations and it is indicative of the postures and posturing we see all around us.
