Centered around artists who “situate the body as a site of address—one to name, to call, to speak toward, to challenge, to redress—and question how the exchange between viewer and subject impacts the social and physical movements of bodies and how they are seen in the world,” the show includes work by Hannah Black, Judy Chicago, Aria Dean, Anaïs Duplan, Caspar Heinemann, Lubaina Himid, E. Jane, Clotilde Jiménez, Miatta Kawinzi, Mary Kelly, Lynn Hershman Leeson, Tiona Nekkia McClodden, Ana Mendieta, Ad Minoliti, Troy Montes Michie, Toyin Ojih Odutola, Athena Papadopoulos, Imran Perretta, Sondra Perry, Tschabalala Self, Lorna Simpson, Sin Wai Kin, Diamond Stingily, Jessica Vaughn, and Zadie Xa.
