"Body Work: Photographs of Nudes"
2000-08-26 until 2001-01-07
Minneapolis Institute of Arts
Minneapolis, MN, USA

This exhibition, drawn primarily from the Instituteís permanent collection, will feature the work of about ten internationally known photographers. Their pictures span more than one hundred years and represent every major movement in photography. Eadweard Muybridge, working in the late 19th century, included nude men and women in an extensive analysis of human motion.

Edward Steichen, as a turn-of-the-century pictorialist, idealized the nude, making evocative, soft-focus images. Edward Weston, working after World War I, created Modernist images of women, often emphasizing abstract shapes and forms. During the second half of the 20th century, photographers such as Bill Brandt and Judy Coleman continued to engage the human figure in a wide range of imagery, making it one of the mediumís most enduring subjects.
