Panel Discussion: The Role of the Nude in Contemporary Photography

Written by:



Moderated by George Pitts With Mona Kuhn, Vince Aletti, Mariah Robertson and Shen Wei

George Pitts moderates a discussion between Mona Kuhn, Vince Aletti, Shen Wei and Mariah Robertson investigating the role of nudes in contemporary photography. Naked or nude, sentimental or in-your-face, the body stripped bare commands our attention in real life and in art.  An insightful dialogue between artists, critics and scholars, about how contemporary photographers channel their passions and fears into their work as they contribute to the visual language of the nude in art.
