Pleasure (29th November–7th March 2020) presents the work of a diverse group of artists who use the body to celebrate joy, humor, flamboyance and the outrageous. From decoration, embellishment and exaggeration to examinations of identity and beauty and its various interpretations, Pleasure explores how artists and designers have used the body as a personal, provocative and at times political canvas from the flamboyant 1980's to contemporary times. Be pleasured!
