The Male Gaze
May 17 - July 14, 2018

The Male Gaze - Installation Image

In a twist on the traditional feminist interpretation of the “male gaze,” GALLERY 1/1 presents a new photography exhibition exploring how men see themselves and other men from behind the camera lens. The featured artists address themes of sexual desire, identity, self-reflection, masculinity, and the dynamics of power that are core critiques of the objectifying male gaze.

GALLERY 1/1 specializes in one-of-a-kind alternative and experimental photographic prints adding an exciting and unique challenge to creating this figurative photography show. Featured prints will include: the debut of a large-scale male nude pinhole camera chromogenic print by CT-based Robert Calafiore, brand new male nude study monotypes on vintage found materials by NYC-based Robert Flynt, unique acid-lift mordancage silver-gelatin self-portraits by Baltimore-based Brian Henry, hand-abraded pigment prints of MMA fighters by Illinois-based Antonio J. Martinez, a vintage Polaroid collage by the Massachusetts-based collage master John O’Reilly, Polaroid self-portraits by LA-based Eric Potts, recent glass-plate ambrotype self-portraits by Virginia-based Robert A. Williams and a selection of vintage snapshots from the collection of Seattle-based Robert E. Jackson.

OPENING RECEPTION: Thursday, May 17th from 6-9 p.m. during Ballard Night Out Art Walk

GALLERY 1/1 is in Seattle's Ballard neighborhood tucked into the historic Kress Building at 2221 NW 56th Street, Suite 102.  We are open Thursday - Saturday 12-6pm and by appointment.  Click here for DIRECTIONS AND MAP.
