The Untitled Space is pleased to present “In The Raw: The Female Gaze on the Nude”, an exhibit of 20 female artists and their intimate vision on the female nude. Curated by Indira Cesarine and Coco Dolle, the exhibit will be on view from May 4 - June 4, and includes works of photography, painting, sculpture, mixed media and video. Throughout history the nude has been the muse of countless artists, yet for the most part, until recently, that perspective has been predominately male. The past several decades have ushered in a new era of powerful female visual storytellers, who focus on their own personal experiences as women, and embrace a vision of the nude that is brave and honest. Each artist brings her own voice to the forefront, whether channeled through an autobiographical point of view, whimsical, raw or erotic lens, it remains fearlessly uncensored.

Exhibiting artists include: Amanda Charchian, Aneta Bartos, Annika Connor, Coco Dolle, Elisa Garcia de la Huerta, Ellen Jong, Indira Cesarine, Jennifer Caviola, Katya Zvereva, Kelsey Bennett, Leah Schrager, Logan White, Loretta Mae Hirsch, Lynn Bianchi, Maria Kreyn, Marianna Rothen, Marie Tomanova, Meredith Ostrom, Sophia Wallace and Victoria de Lesseps.

“In The Raw: The Female Gaze on the Nude” creates a cultural discourse of women on women, a female intervention, so to speak, on patriarchal culture. The “male gaze” which we have grown up with via art, television, media, and advertising is so ingrained in our system that most are unaware it exists. The sexual politics of “the gaze” throughout history have positioned women as an “object of desire” framed by masculine scopophilia. “In The Raw: The Female Gaze on the Nude” aims to explore a perspective less chartered, that of a woman’s eye on another, be it beautiful or shocking, gross or glorious. Honest moments are revealed and celebrated, while genuine and objective frames of reference expose works that are at once empowered and sensitive. The stories these women tell share rites of passage, passion and sisterhood. It is no secret that the female nude has been admired and addressed throughout history by male artists, yet rarely have we seen it celebrated by so many female artists, who challenge the status quo with a liberating and authentic beauty.
