Pleasure (29 November – 7 March 2020) RMIT Gallery

Pleasure presents the work of a diverse group of artists who use the body to celebrate joy, humour, flamboyance and the outrageous.

From decoration, embellishment and exaggeration to examinations of identity and beauty and its various interpretations, RMIT Gallery’s provocative new exhibition Pleasure (29 November – 7 March 2020) explores how artists and designers have used the body as a personal, provocative and at times political canvas from the flamboyant 1980s to contemporary times.

WARNING: Adult themes and content in some of the gallery spaces.
