Examined Bodies

Man as Object: Reversing the Gaze

The 2011 San Francisco art show places men as women have been in the past, as objects under examination. The show went to the Kinsey Institute after San Francisco.

“Men act and women appear. Men look at women. Women watch themselves being looked at” art critic John Berger observed.  The tables get turned in the show Man As Object, becoming the subject of examination.
