The Academic Body

Giuseppe Stampone @ the American Academy in Rome

The American Academy in Rome presents The Academic Body, an exhibition that spans over a century to tell the changes in the representation of the body in art and society. Since the origins of representation, the human body has been a vehicle for a variety of approaches to artistic expression. As a way of imagining the divine, as a site of ideal beauty and ruminations on mortality, or as the contested ground between nature and culture, bodies-and representations of bodies-index a culture's ideas about itself and mark the locus for the questioning and contestation of the human form.


It will be possible to visit the exhibition from May, 23 to July, 13 2019.
