Virtual Artist Talk & Reception: Thursday, October 22 @ 5:30pm via Zoom
Harwood Art Center is pleased to present our October exhibition, “Soft” by Helen Atkins in the Front Gallery. “Soft” is a sculptural installation that examines rituals of transformation, and the relationship between physicality and identity. The series focuses on the belly as a source of deep cultural and individual significance. The “belly portraits” depict real individuals, modeled from references gathered via social media. These portraits exalt a depreciated part of the body, often shrouded in shame and hid in privacy.
This exhibition is installed in our gallery and is available to view by appointment only. Make an appointment and register for the Artist Talk on our website www.harwoodartcenter.org/soft
