This event is no longer on sale.

Friday September 19

1:00 PM  –  4:00 PM

SEP 19 | Fri 1-4 pm | Chace Center Galleries

The dynamic work of the artists featured in What Nerve! Alternative Figures in American Art from 1960 to the Present re-imagined the use of the figure in widely varying mediums and formats. Through a series of gallery conversation, artists, curators and art historians will explore key themes and issues that emerge from the exhibition and resonate today including the body as generative force, audacious sexuality, an interest in disguise and obfuscation, as well as the ambition to make works that break from the restraints of conventional categorization.
