Exposed at CultureFix, Con Artist considers nudity in the spirit of 19th century French Academic Salons. Whether shamelessly flaunting or leaving a bit to the imagination, members invite you to an inherently private show. Undoubtedly the starkest, most genuine, and uncomfortably honest exhibition of the summer. The nude figure is a trope in art history, as both subject and metaphor. Why? Necessity, narcissism, intimate understanding - maybe even boredom... Regardless, Con Artists stand here in the buff, and for so much more.
