Event Description

The newly formed CSUN Arts Alumni Association is pleased to invite you to “Beautiful Parts” a group exhibition juried by artist, Kim Abeles — a Guggenheim and J. Paul Getty Trust fellow, and organized by the curatorial collective Rough Play. “Beautiful Parts” marks the first exhibition hosted by the CSUN Alumni Association Arts Chapter.

Understanding that precepts of attractiveness have evolved over time and vary between cultures, this exhibition invites artists to consider cultural constructions of aesthetic appeal, and asks, “How do we receive messages about beauty in a contemporary global society and how are we affected by internalizing ideals?” Works selected for the exhibition respond to canons of bodily proportion, such as ratio depiction (waist-to- chest, waist-to- hip, and leg-to- body), and consider the distinction between “real” and “ideal”. The artists selected for Beautiful Parts approach these issues with awareness of the history and continued evolution of dialogues surrounding body image and the related psychologies of status, identity, physical attraction, and self-esteem.

Featured artists include: Marlena Guzman, Catherine Bennation, Jessika Edgar, Zeina Baltagi, David Estrada, Kristine Schomaker, Rain Lucien Matheke, Nurit Avesar, Alexsandra Papoban, Kimberly Morris, Michelle Nunes, John Zarcone, Monica Sandoval, Karsa, Mona, Kellan Barnebey King
