“Voyeur: Repositioning the Gaze” Documented

I had the pleasure of attending the Curator’s Talk, Opening Reception, and Artists’ Panel for the exhibition, “Voyeur: Repositioning the Gaze.” The exhibit was held in the Truman State University Art Gallery at Truman State University in Kirksville, MO. It was an extraordinary gallery space. My fellow artists in the show presented creative and interesting voyeuristic work. Voyeurism in contemporary society is expressed in a variety of ways – with a variety of meanings. Brandelyn Dillaway, curator for the show, illustrated this idea through the bodies of work selected. One artist photographed images of residents in a retirement home as she peeped through the window. While another artist explored self-objectification through a voyeuristic approach.

The artists who exhibited work were Deedra BakerWafaa BilalDaniel CoburnRobert Ladislas DerrGina GenisNate Larson & Marni Shindelman (who collaborated on a project), Freja Mitchell, and Thinh Nguyen. The mediums included photography and videography.
