“What spirit is so empty and blind, that it cannot recognize the fact that the foot is more noble than the shoe, and skin more beautiful than the garment with which it is clothed?”
The history of nudity in art is never the same, as different societies and cultures have embraced nude scenes to varying degrees over centuries. Indeed, nudity in art reflects the social norms of a given time and place, referring to the way things are depicted, inextricably linked to the notion of what is right or wrong to depict. In any case, while nudity is often associated with the most blatant sexuality, it may also have other meanings, so much so that it is linked to interpretations that come from mythology and religion, as well as from the study of anatomy and science. These multiple approaches have defined how the nude has been and remains the subject of different modes of representation in Western art history.
Contemporary artists can depict nudity either by referring to the great pictorial tradition of the past or by expressing themselves through free and innovative points of view. In either case, the aim of such an exploration, with nudity as its subject, is to identify the semblance of what the artist believes could express the purest idea of beauty, capable of animating, intriguing, attracting and stirring their imagination.
In this context, the participating artists will examine the theme nudity, female and male, in the contemporary context.
