  • Athens Institute for Contemporary Art is pleased to announce Visceral: Images of the Internal Body, a hard-hitting collection of imagery exploring the internal body in a variety of materials and approaches by eight out-of-town artist and nine locals. Although there has been sustained focus on body art throughout the 1990's, the majority of that work explored the sexualized body, whereas this exhibit is designed to lead us inward to the subjective experience of our internal bodies, and the impact of medical imagery on its artistic interpretation. Though not for the squeamish, the images transcend medical illustration into spiritual and philosophical realms.
