"The (Re)Birth of Venus" Perfromance by Katherine Crockett + "In The Raw" Exhibit Cocktail
The Untitled Space is pleased to announce extended exhibition dates of critically acclaimed exhibit, “In The Raw: The Female Gaze on the Nude,” as well as a special performance by renowned dancer Katherine Crockett on June 1st. Curated by Indira Cesarine and Coco Dolle, the exhibit featuring 20 female artists and their intimate vision on the nude will now be on view through June 4th, and includes works of photography, painting, sculpture, mixed media and video. Throughout history the nude has been the muse of countless artists, yet for the most part, until recently, that perspective has been predominately male. The past several decades have ushered in a new era of powerful female visual storytellers, who focus on their own personal experiences as women, and embrace a vision of the nude that is brave and honest. Each artist brings her own voice to the forefront, whether channeled through an autobiographical point of view, whimsical, raw or erotic lens, it remains fearlessly uncensored.
Dancer, actor and performance artist Katherine Crockett will be performing an original piece, “The (Re)Birth of Venus“ at the gallery in an exclusive reception with artists and curators of the exhibit also present. Katherine recently starred as the Queen in the Off-Boadway hit “Queen of the Night” for which she created and choreographed her role. She is a former Principal Dancer with The Martha Graham Dance Company. Crockett has performed with Mikhail Baryshnikov as a guest soloist with his White Oak Dance Company and she has also been a featured performer in works by Robert Wilson, Martha Clarke, Yvonne Rainer, Susan Stroman, Lucinda Childs, Richard Move as well as on the runways of Alexander McQueen and John Galliano.
