Gitana Rosa Gallery Presents: HUNG Checking Out the Contemporary Male
Opening Reception: Friday, September 17, 7-10PM September 17 __" October 16, 2010
To kick off the fall season, Williamsburg__™s Gitana Rosa Gallery, refracts the male gaze.
Hung, a multimedia exhibition, hones in on the male nude. A heroic figure in Greek, Roman and Renaissance art, the male nude proves more fascinating than ever. Whether it is relegated to obscurity or exalted past recognition, men__™s bodies continue to challenge both men__™s and women__™s perceptions.
Love them or hate them, Hung__™s male nudes tease the line between the sensuous and the glaringly obvious to present a nuanced portrait of the contemporary male.
Opening night will be sponsored by Hangar One Vodka, Kraken Rum and Brooklyn Brewery. Please also join us for the Williamsburg Gallery Association Second Friday__™s Art Crawl on October 8, 2010 for late night hours and musical performance.
Gallery hours: Thursday and Friday 1-7pm and Saturdays, 12-6pm and by appointment.
