Luminous Bodies is a two-week art residency that illuminates the diversity of the human body. Resident artists uncover how our bodies are socially constructed, idealized and controlled. They create artworks that reinvent and re-present the body in its most diverse ways. This year’s artists are working in a wide range of media including performance, painting, creative writing, drawing, sound art, social choreography, video, and sculpture.
