nakedNY until 19/9/2009  293 Tenth Avenue Paul Kasmin Gallery Paul Kasmin Gallery is pleased to announce its upcoming summer exhibition of sundry flesh from July 9-September 19, with an opening reception on July 9th, 6-8PM.  Naked is not nude nor “naturalist” – it is altogether more intriguing, predicating perhaps a state of desire, whether narcissistic or voyeuristic, that sense of being naked as an active, self-conscious sense of heightened awareness if not arousal. While nudity is continuously represented in the history of art, the classical nude often pretends to itself that it is not just plain naked. Of course, anyone can tell the difference, can feel it on their own skin indeed. While nudity, in its mythological and even mystic beauty is to be appreciated, this exhibition will present the naked – traditionally arousing, interpreted by myriad artists. With no further beating around the bush, this is a show of males and females without clothing, surely not inherently contentious at this stage of the game – we suppose.  Masterworks, as it were, abound, from the likes of David LaChapelle, Jack Pierson, and Mark Ryden, or Baroque maestro Nicolaes Berchem. There will surely be fine things from such impeccable pre-post-feminists such as Pablo Picasso, and popstars Mel Ramos, Andy Warhol, and Tom Wesselmann. Also expect the guilt-ridden inclusion of such female luminaries as Cecily Brown, Louise Bourgeois, Lee Miller, and Kate Millett. This is the one of many exhibitions curated by the ridiculously sublime Adrian Dannatt.  (Image: Naked Duncan Hannah, Showgirl, 2009)
