Joel-Peter Witkin: From the Studio
May 3 — July 3, 2019
OPENING RECEPTION WITH THE ARTIST: Friday, May 3 5:00–8:00 pm
“For more than 60 years, Joel-Peter Witkin has stayed true to his mission: to create photographs that show the beauty of marginalized people by placing them into art referential tableaus, often laced with Catholic overtones. His work features hermaphrodites, post and pre-op individuals, and people born with physical abnormalities. In his eyes, all people are beautiful, regardless of societal norms.”
