FULL FRONTAL

Curator + Organizer, Wabi Sabi Warehouse, Wilmington NC, 2017

Videography by Scott Evans, Soundtrack by Dez Wright, Editing by Kristen Crouch

In FULL FRONTAL, Southern artists take on the comprehensive topic of nudity as visual art, performance, and video installation. Through the integration of live models and figure drawing classes FULL FRONTAL confronts the miseducation of sex and self-acceptance in our culture. A panel-community conversation asks how this common taboo contributes to social injustices and immorality, and debates the oft narrow delineations between art, pornography, and assault.
