The exhibition catalog for Framing Beauty: Intimate Visions, curated by DPI Chair Dr. Deborah Willis, is now available from Indiana University Press. The catalog was edited by Betsy Stiratt.
Beauty is one of the most enigmatic, undefinable, and subjective qualities in contemporary visual art. Framing Beauty: Intimate Visions features essays by Deborah Willis, a leading curator and historian of photography, and Rujeko Hockley, Curator at the Brooklyn Museum, as they describe beauty from a variety of cultural, historical, and visual perspectives. Striking images by twenty respected visual artists and photographers contribute different views to the topic of the physical body and racial and feminist perspectives on beauty. Framing Beauty: Intimate Visions catalogues the recent exhibit curated by Willis at the Grunwald Gallery of Art at Indiana University.
