What is a contemporary nude? This exhibition shows it is unchanged in its play with controversy yet remodelled to reflect current issues and discontent with gender identity and inequality, social prejudice and marginalisation, technology and media representation. Meg Cowell, Dagmar Cyrulla, Chelsea Gustafsson, Janne Kearney, Kathrin Longhurst and Michael Simms depict figures in states of undress, with enticing red lips, bare skin and a confronting gaze. We also find expressive falling poses, transient forms, and vulnerable women observed through doors left ajar.
