The St. Louis Artists’ Guild is proud to host Clearly Human IV, an all-media group exhibition of artwork focused on the human figure. Clearly Human IV gives a comprehensive look at the many ways of representing the human figure, from traditional to contemporary, realistic to fanciful, beautiful to unsettling. The exhibit seeks a diverse view of the humanity representing subjects varying greatly in gender, age, ethnicity, and nationality. The artists are encouraged to use the figure to explore a wide variety of themes, including definitions of beauty, perceptions of history, relationships with nature, and moments of everyday life.

Curatorial concept

The figure, specifically the nude, is arguably the most widely used subject matter in the history of art. From the Venus of Willendorf and Ancient Greece to Picasso and Giacometti, the nude figure has been used formally and conceptually to represent not only the model, but the emotions and ideals of their times and places. In this global world, what does it mean to use the nude in our modern age, particularly with the advent of new materials and technologies, both in the creation and spread of the artwork. How has the tradition carried over, and how has it changed to reflect our society?

From the Reubeneque figures to the airbrushed and photoshopped images we see today, how can the way we deal with the figure show us what our modern conceptions of beauty tell us about ourselves? How do the physical characteristics of the human body define a societies’ values? What are the values that society deems important enough to put into art?

Deadlines are as follows:
First round submission deadline: December 15th 2018

Applications are notified 20th December 2018.
