One of our favorites, Kent Fine Art opens it’s fall season with FLEX, curated by Orlando Tirado. The exhibition explores shape, mass, and form of the body in relation to an emerging queer, transgender, renegade post-minimalist strategy that strips the body of its flesh, framework, and constraints. The project presented through October 31, offers a radical alternative to presupposed identity politics, one that re-defines the body against the grain of a representational impulse, and posits a new vision of the contemporary body through absence, movement, fluctuation, and abstraction, rather than concrete, figurative depiction.
