Soma Grossa: Opening Reception
November 17, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
SOMA GROSSA is a multi-media survey of painting, installation, soft sculpture, video, jewelry and photography by fat artists explicitly making work about fatness. Rather than engage in the targeted joyful representation of small to mid-fat bodies popular in the ‘body positivity movement,’ this exhibition critiques the overwhelming metaphysical censorship of fat lives in a world that attempts to will them out of existence or consume them as entertainment. The works in this show challenge viewers’ to consider their own histories with anti-fat attitudes, while simultaneously engaging in the radical act of creating communities between fat people. SOMA GROSSA is curated by Anna Mirzayan as part of Brew House Association’s Prospectus Emerging Curator program.
SOMA GROSSA will be on view at the Brew House Gallery from November 17, 2022 to January 14, 2023. The opening reception is on Thursday, November 17, from 6 – 8:30 pm, and will feature performances from Amanda Kleinhans and Néstor Daniel Pérez-Molière from 6:30 – 7:30 pm. The opening is free to attend. Please register by clicking the eventbrite link below.
