Event description
Pleasure presents the work of a diverse group of artists who use the body to celebrate joy, humour, flamboyance and the outrageous.

About this Event

From decoration, embellishment and exaggeration to examinations of identity and beauty and its various interpretations, RMIT Gallery's provocative new exhibition Pleasure (29 November - 7 March 2020) explores how artists and designers have used the body as a personal, provocative and at times political canvas from the flamboyant 1980s to contemporary times.

WARNING: Adult themes and content in some of the gallery spaces.

Join us at the opening night party - which will offer many surprises and pleasures... including DJ, performances and prizes for best outfit...this is an end of year celebration of the arts not to be missed.
