CORPUS, the latin word for body, brings together artists who question ideas and ideals of male beauty and desire. The concept of "The Male Venus is central to this exhibition and aims to confront notions of the nude male within an art cannon which has primarily had the female nude as a worshiped naked body. CORPUS boldly reveals and questions masculinity, beauty, male identity and desire.
