The Body Electric

Exhibition and Shows

31 Oct 2020 to 26 Jan 2021 Once Only Event

The Body Electric presents work by women artists on the subjects of sex, pleasure and desire. The exhibition features some of the pioneering figures in recent photography and video. Included are celebrations of woman’s erotic experience; stories of intimacy and the emotional experience of love; works that interrogate the ways that women’s sexuality has historically been represented; and pictures that deal with the pleasures and repressions of sexuality and pleasure. The images in this exhibition show how sex, love and loss are an animating part of the human experience.

The Body Electric features works by Lynda Benglis, Polly Borland, Pat Brassington, Sophie Calle, Jo Ann Callis, Charis (and George Schwarz), Cheryl Donegan, Christine Godden, Nan Goldin, Petrina Hicks, Mayumi Hosokura, Claire Lambe, Pixy Liao, Anne McDonald, Annette Messager, Tracey Moffatt, Momo Okabe, Lillian O’Neil, Fiona Pardington, Carolee Schneemann, Collier Schorr, Cindy Sherman, Annie Sprinkle, Lyndal Walker and Franchesca Woodman.
