James Fuentes is pleased to announce its forthcoming exhibition, They Gaze. “What happens when the gaze isn’t the omnipotent gaze of the artist or anonymous viewer—usually male—but the subject of the painting itself? What happens when the painting gazes back and questions its audience? If the gaze emanates from a position of alterity and not authority, is the viewer more or less shaken?” —Jamieson Webster
In a culture of social media-condoned surveillance, this exhibition seeks to redefine the question of the gaze through works by Felipe Baeza, Hernan Bas, Somaya Critchlow, Celeste Dupuy-Spencer, Louis Fratino, Alex Gardner, Henry Gunderson, Paul P., Yves Tessier, Didier William, Chloe Wise, Harumi Yamaguchi, and Lisa Yuskavage.
