Voyeurism Subverted

Lisa Brice at the Tate – nudes in their own terms

Culture

Question your own 'male gaze' at a new Tate Britain exhibition by confrontational artist Lisa Brice.

Here are some highlights from Lisa Brice’s display which is part of the Tate’s ‘Art Now’ series.

Lisa Brice

With her work, the South African-born, London-based artist Lisa Brice aims to subvert the usual passive appearances of nudes in paintings – you know where male artists have hired prostitutes to paint/screw/kill depending on if you’re Egon Schiele/Modgliani/Caravaggio. Instead Brice positions her nudes as powerful, dancing, drinking, or just being natural and without shame.

Lisa Brice

Powerful and thought-provoking, and on a gut level, just very, very cool.

Art NowLisa Brice‘ is at Tate Britain from 26 April – 27 August.
