Constantly at battle with a society who would rather objectify the female nude than let women dictate their own representation, women began to resist artistically in many ways. Outside of poster art, many female artists took to staged protests and performance art within global cities to reclaim the female nude. Beyond the city, women started to take nudes in the landscape as a form of resistance. The environment quickly became a key force in the fight for freedom as women turned to the purity and inherently feminine Mother Nature to set themselves free from the shackles of the patriarchy and the voyeuristic fixation of the male gaze. Taking nudes in the landscape as early as the s, Brigman would set the tone for women in the landscape, as shown by Judy Chicago , Carolee Schneemann , Ana Mendieta , Laura Aguilar , and more who all feature in Laid Bare. To launch the show, Wolfe walks us through six key artists from the show and why the female nude and the landscape were two of the most important tools for their resistance.

A hyperreal nude redefining beauty
When it comes to studying nude photography , there definitely seems to be a preference for shooting in black and white over colour. It is perhaps because the former allows the artists to better engage with the great contrasts and beauty of the human body. From giants of 20th century art right through to very modern photographers, the artists curated here all bring something exciting to the medium.
When you think about the cultural norm for the "ideal body," odds are the types of skeletal bodies blasted across magazine covers, billboard advertisements and mainstream entertainment come to mind. But rewind a couple centuries and these types of angular physiques were almost nowhere to be found. In the glory days of painters like Peter Paul Rubens and Titian, curvaceous bodies reigned supreme, as artists yearned to capture the soft dimensions of the human form in all its fleshy goodness. In her series "Unadorned," German photographer Julia Fullerton-Batten combines classical and contemporary stylings, capturing sharp-edged nude photographs in the style of classical Baroque-era paintings.
