Exhibition highlights include; International artists interpret their take on manliness in the oeuvre of the ever evolving and redefining gender, and what this might look like in the future century of art. Greek sculptor Spiros Contoulis and his Pegasus sculpture begin the discussion of manliness with his unique interpretation of the ancient Greek mythical hero. Featured Artist Aurora Molina explores caballerismo through a family lens in a fabric wall installation commencing from man’s inception and the chromosomes that make a man, to the journey a man takes in life while artist Rob Anderson explores the heart of man that began to beat even before history was recorded, with an interpretive mixed media installation recreating urban landscapes through iconography painted on cardboard boxes focused on man’s primal need for shelter and love while offering open interpretation of gender roles and an appreciation for one-ness. Khotan Fernandez’s imposing, welded-steel cages filled with plastic pink flamingos from the artists’ series of American Lawn explores both the burden and splendor of suburban life.

On the other end of the spectrum, Artist Pia MYvroLD takes a technical approach to explore a new form of masculinity, that is to say femininity, through new media work Venus Blue.Artists Franck de la Mercedes and Carlos Rancero take on the theme through figurative works echoing swimming images of the human emotion and physical desires: The Art of Manliness is devoted to the varied array of the artist’s personal take of manly pursuits.
