York's latest art exhibition is all about flesh
Share This Article:
York Art Gallery’s newest exhibition is pretty personal. Entitled “Flesh”, it’s all about just that: human, animal, dead, alive – an exploration of how artists represent flesh. As you can imagine, many creatives are obsessed with ideas of flesh. This means that there’s a huge range of styles and artists on show: from the Baroque (Peter Paul Rubens) to the modern (Sarah Lucas) by way of the abstract (Francis Bacon) – and so much more. The exhibition promises to “raise questions about the body and ageing, race and gender, touch and texture and surface and skin”. Some of the works are touching and beautiful, next to others which are more visceral and challenging. So if you want a really in-depth look at flesh, maybe it’s time to book that trip to York? “Flesh” is running from September 23 2016 to March 19 2017 at the York Art Gallery.
