Collecting Bodies: A short story about art and nudities in Asia
gathers stories, histories, and encounters between 26 artists, 31 artworks, and 10 private collections. How is the image of a body held? How have we held our bodies in their image? How have we carried the bodies of others? Presented by The Culture Story and curated by Dr Yanyun Chen, the exhibition considers the intricate and nuanced relationship between the act of representation and the act of collecting.
