Tuesday 19 June 2018 – Friday 20 July 2018
Opening at 19th June 2018 6 pm
careva contemporary is delighted to present “Stroke”, the first solo exhibition by Russian born artist Dasha Glukhova in Riga. The show is built around five female sitters, whose characters become apparent in the diverse ways that they approach nudity. By revealing their bodies they exhibit their inner nature and also their very different relationship to the viewer.
“Stroke” comments on the prevalent nature of banning images of nudity in social media and contemporary art, as they are often seen as pornographic or objectifying. By painting over some of the images Glukhova makes them socially acceptable for sharing, yet questions the nature of the role of female body in traditional art.
Tuesday – Friday, 12am – 6pm
