Darker, Lighter, Puffy, Flat – misleidys castillo pedroso on view at the kunsthalle wien, museumsquartier

29/11/23 - 14/04/24


The group exhibition Darker, Lighter, Puffy, Flat looks at the meaning of the human breast in culture, society, and art history. It brings together international and local artists – our represented artist Misleidys Castillo Pedroso is one of them –, new commissions, and previously exhibited works that (in one way or another) explore the breast, the tensions and conflicts it creates, but also its sensuality and its playfulness. Breasts – especially women’s – are in many ways omnipresent in our lives: in advertisements, the portrayal of women in films and video games, and casual references in all kinds of conversations.
