Summary

Featuring work by a broad cross-section of contemporary artists, this exhibition catalogue from The Aldrich Museum of Contemporary Art explores one of art's oldest and most enduring themes--the nude. Academic painters and sculptors are set alongside installation and performance artists, in a unique survey that emphatically bridges the traditional and the avant-garde. "The Nude in Contemporary Art" includes works by Tina Barney, Lisa Bartolozzi, Paul Cadmus, Chuck Close, John Coplans, Meg Cranston, John Currin, Jeanne Dunning, Karen Finley, Lucian Freud, John O'Reilly, Spencer Tuick and Lisa Yuskavage, among many others.
