The Naked Truth – Ammar Abd Rabbo (2015)

Debuting a new body of work by the artist, the exhibition features mixed-media photographic works that explore the concept of #censorship in the #Arab #world as it is applied to the #naked #body and affirmations of #sexuality. Invoking the blacked-out imagery of print, billboard, and other forms of #censored #media, Abd Rabbo combines original photographs with overlaid text and painted areas that conceal the ‘risqué’ details of #nude #portraits.
