artists & participants
Obsession with youth dominates the media and entertainment industries and is making a niche in recent contemporary art. Will Boys Be Boys? examines the nature of adolescent masculinity in art from the past five years. The exhibition brings together recent paintings, photographs, sculptures, installations and video works by 20 artists including Larry Clark, Tim Gardner, Anthony Goicolea, Nikki Lee, Tom Sachs and Collier Schorr, who investigate this pop culture phenomenon. While the exhibition draws upon earlier precedents dealing with gender and masculinity, Will Boys Be Boys? is the first museum exhibition to survey masculine adolescence in contemporary art.
This exhibition was organized by Independent Curators International (ICI), Shamim Momin, guest curator.
