Reconfigured Bodies: Contemporary Prints from David Altmejd to Dana Schutz
LeRoy Neiman Center for Print Studies
The LeRoy Neiman Center for Print Studies has collaborated on editions with several artists who have reconfigured traditional notions of the human body as a means of exploring myth, identity, cultural taboos and personal narratives in images that range from the sublime to the grotesque. The artists represented in this selection have worked primarily in painting and drawing or sculpture and photography yet came to the Neiman Center with the desire to rethink their images in printed form. Their results were wide and varied but stand together in their common interest in the body as an enduring emblem capable of expressing diverse ideas and conveying myriad stories.
