Robyn Renee Hasty
Pioneer Works | 159 Pioneer St.
Curated by Walker Waugh
For the past year, Hasty has been an artist resident at Pioneer Works exploring 19th century wet-plate collodion tintype and ambrotype developing processes to produce an extensive series of nude portraiture. The resulting works are both canonical and enigmatic: formally classical compositions that subtly challenge gender-binary conventions by disorienting the perception of how gender is visually expressed and embodied. Working with a spectrum of gender non-conforming individuals, Hasty’s work deconstructs the often limiting representation of the nude body in search of a more diverse, fluid identity.
Opening Reception: Thursday, June 11, 6-9pm
