“Unruly Bodies,” by New York-based, body-neutral artist Lindsey Guile set to explore concepts of self image through the lens of contemporary feminist theory opens on Nov. 3 at the Mary Cosgrove Dolphin Gallery. The Visual and Performing Arts (VPA) Department will hold an opening reception from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. with the artist.
“These pieces in particular represent my right, and the rights of the individuals I draw, to exist, as is, in spaces that we have been previously denied,” Guile said. “We are unapologetic and resilient, a strength cultivated from determination to normalize all the shapes our bodies take.”
The opening reception will feature an artist talk by Guile at 6 p.m. followed by a “meet the artist” opportunity on Friday, Nov. 4, 2022 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Gallery.
