Kim Reierson -Body Presenters @ Robin Rice Gallery 5/5/10

See you there!

The Robin Rice Gallery announces "Body Presenters", an exhibition of photographs by Kim Reierson. An opening reception will be held on May 5th, 2010 from 5:30 to 8:30pm. The show runs through June 20, 2010.

Kim Reierson's images in "Body Presenters" are at once as intensely private as personal sensory and brashly public as an aesthetic immortalization. Bodybuilding is alternately referred to by its practitioners and admirers as both an art and sport, and Reierson's camera works to convey a similarly duplicitous take— roaming backstage among the icons, she captures details of their collective camaraderie and untiring self-address, in turn revealing the spirit of competition and simultaneous artistic illusions.

Reierson, in homage to the emerging Fin de Siecle roots of bodybuilding, has chosen to present the works of this exhibition in glass-domed frames dating from 1870 to 1920. These selected frames she sought after and compiled are a piece of American history, having once encased diverse images from our nation's past.
