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.
