One Year Later: Work by Tisch Mikhail Lewis
Reception: May 13th 7-10 pm
May 14th 12-3pm

In “One Year Later” Lewis examines the common social response to obesity, that of repulsion- and questions its validity. “I use my work as a way to make sense of the world around me by deconstructing my experiences and examining them in terms of sociological theory pertaining to identity, body image, race and intersections between the three” she says. In her work, Lewis abstracts the overweight figure, rendering with bright and emotive colors and transforming something that it normally hidden away into the visual centerpiece, confronting the Western ideal of beauty and flipping it on it’s head.

The exhibition is for two days only, May 13-14th. This event is free and open to the public. All ages welcome. For more information, e-mail Rachel at rachel@whitdelarts.com. For a full schedule of exhibitions and events by Whitdel Arts, please visit www.whitdelarts.com.
