Stark Imagery: The Male Nude in Art considers the male body and its various representations over the last four centuries, from depictions in the fine arts to those in the media and popular culture. The exhibition explores diverse themes relating to masculinity and the fluid notion of gender, including body form, homoeroticism, athleticism, virility, manliness, and its ever-changing aesthetic. The artists represented include Roger Crossgrove, Benjamin Degen, Eric Fertman, Toyin Ojih Odutola, Barkley L. Hendricks, and Nancy Spero.

Stark Imagery is a collaboration with the University of Connecticut’s Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies program.
