Changing Bodies Exhibition Artist Roster Announced

From September 19th – November 1st, 2019, Bellevue College Gallery Space will be exhibiting works in a variety of media that examine the body and how various internal and external elements subject it to change. With a diverse range of national and regional artists, the exhibition hopes to challenge preconceived notions of what bodies should look like, which bodies should be visible, and what does it mean to have or imagine to have, ownership of your own body. Visitors will discover works that challenge them to think differently about bodies and their role in contemporary art and society.
