The body that is too fat, too sick, too Black, too foreign, too femme, too queer, too old...

One year ago, Roxane Gay asked 24 writers to consider what it means to live in an unruly body. The prompt for Medium was deceptively simple, personal but universal, and yielded beautiful narratives.

Now, nine artists probe the themes of Gay’s Unruly Bodies magazine for an exhibition of the same name. What does it mean to move through the world in a body that contradicts societal norms? What does it mean to struggle against, come to terms with, or assert our physicality? How can we claim the space that we deserve?

Exhibition: April 27–September 21, 2019
