The Boundaries of the Body: Depicting the Female Form and Identity

Lee Bul, Marilyn Minter, and Mickalene Thomas are artists who explore the aesthetic influences that inform women’s identities. Pushing against stereotypical notions, Thomas and Minter reappropriate historical and commercial portrayals of women, while Lee Bul offers entirely new, futuristic, and powerful representations. All three artists seek to reassert autonomy and expose the causation between representations of women and their social agency.
