Pleasure & the Grotesque: Decorating Bodies 1980s to Now

29 Nov 2019 - 7 Mar 2020

What gives us satisfaction and enjoyment in our bodily expression may also be seen as ugly and subversive by others. From decoration and enhancement, to fashion and sexuality, Pleasure & the Grotesque explores how artists and designers have grappled with the body and its mutable identity from the flamboyant 1980s to contemporary times.

Artists including Frances Cannon, Kate Durham, William Eicholtz, Leah Emery, Judith Glover, Gun Shy, Kate Just, Mithu Sen, Vipoo Srivilasa, TextaQueen, Patricia Untario, Paul Yore, Robert Pearce, Preston Zly.
