Curated by UBC student Katie Schroeder, Full Frontal presents work by Iain Baxter, Tom Dean, Maria Eichhorn, Russell FitzGerald, Noam Gonick, jess, Brian Jungen, Bruce LaBruce, Attila Richard Lukacs, Robert Mapplethorpe, Eric Metcalfe, Michael Morris, Jack Shadbolt, Wolfgang Tillmans, Vincent Trasov and Joyce Wieland, among others. The exhibit draws from the Morris and Helen Belkin collection and seeks to examine relationships between masculinity and male sexuality.

Including photographs, paintings, drawings, sculpture and video, the selection spans 50 years of art making and draws on many perspectives and modes of representation. While the phallus is central to many works, others more formally address themes of male power and ways in which images of masculinity are regulated. From a postcard-sized photo of a man’s groin by American photographer Robert Mapplethorpe to Joyce Weiland’s O Canada lithograph, and from Michael Morris’ stylized and emblematic phallus to a gouache on newspaper image by Jack Shadbolt, the artists variously explore public and private manifestations of sexuality and maleness.

Full Frontal is made possible with support from the Michael O'Brian Family Foundation, the Killy Foundation and the Audain Endowment for Curatorial Studies through the Department of Art History, Visual Art and Theory in collaboration with the Morris and Helen Belkin Art Gallery at The University of British Columbia, and Satellite Gallery.
