3 December - 8 November
Raw Perspectives brings together the work of 14 painters, photographers, sculptors and 4 performance artists who explore the definition and complexity of what it is to be ‘masculine’ in today’s society.
This exhibition encourages dialogue on the validity of the continuing stranglehold on today’s culture and how the nude male body still remains behind almost impenetrable walls of censorship and taboo.
Pit Ca, Jane Clatworthy, Brian Dennis, Phyllis Dupuy, Kennedy Grant, Mark Ho, Stuart Howitt, Martin Ireland, Christopher James Murphy, Sally Shrubsall, Ivor George Sexton, Chrissy Thirlaway, Dante Turner, Georg Meyer-Wiel

The exhibition includes three performance pieces and two life drawing workshops.
This exhibition is supporting Entelechy Arts, a charity that works alongside people who have often been invisible and un-regarded members of their communities, either because of disability, underlying health conditions or the ageing process.
This exhibition has been supported by James Smiths & Sons Ltd and Robert Bridgewater.
