Body, Object, Image​ brings together six artists, each with a history working with clay objects, photographic images, and the human body, to elevate their authentic, unvarnished female perspectives. The exhibition

features works by ​Jennifer Ling Datchuk​, ​Teri Frame​, ​Julie Malen​, ​Margaret Meehan​, ​Claire Sherwood​, and Xia Zhang​. Each artist has approached using the body in their works from a distinct historical, personal, or cultural point in time; incorporating the body as a form in performative fashion, through two-dimensional and three-dimensional self-portraiture, as inspiration for figure modeling, and as a means to recast and recontextualize objects. The spirit of the conversations embedded in these works tie together the artists’ themes as they navigate and ameliorate both history and contemporary life; themes addressing ideas of power, equality, identity, comfort, femininity, and the metaphysical. The artists represented in this exhibition have each staked their claim in the legacy of female artists challenging the paradigmatic status quo, pioneering new paths for future generations.
