Field Projects is proud to present Show #38: BODY/HEAD, an all-female* artist exhibition of contemporary figurative work. 

The swearing in of Donald Trump to the nation’s highest office was a horrific nightmare, come true. Watching Trump run on a platform of racism, xenophobia and white supremacy made it hard to comprehend that anyone could vote for him. Seeing him exposed as an unequivocal sexual predator and hearing him speak so disparagingly of women’s bodies made it impossible to believe that he could in fact win.

In the days since the election, millions of women and men have been protesting Trump’s partisan policies and divisive rhetoric. Women in particular have much to lose in this new administration— one that seems more openly hostile with each official appointment. BODY/HEAD joins the wave of exhibitions, curators and artists who are grabbing back against the suppression of women’s agency and hard-won rights.

The artists in BODY/HEAD examine the human figure from multiple points of view. Unlike Trump’s oppressively singular vision, the artists in BODY/HEAD celebrate difference and multiplicity— the artists’ diverse backgrounds giving even more strength to their powerful voices. Appropriately, the exhibition is housed in Be Fluent, an English-language school that advocates overcoming disadvantage. Most of the school’s students are immigrants.

Special thanks to BE FLUENT NYC for hosting the exhibition.
