Ben Youdan: Glamour
December 15, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - January 13, 2018 @ 4:00 pm
Liverpool Pride are very honoured to be supporting the first major solo exhibition of artist Ben Youdan at The Gallery, Liverpool, presented by DuoVision.
‘Glamour’ features new and unseen work by the Liverpool-based artist, exploring the iconography of glamour and celebrity, the glitz and seedier underbelly of fame and notoriety.
With work currently on display at the Museum of Liverpool, part of the ‘Tales from the City’ exhibition, ‘Glamour’ represents a major milestone in Youdan’s career. The exhibition is two years in the making. The work is simultaneously a celebration and a critique – examining how there is a duality to glamour as on the surface it can appear seductive, appealing and beguiling but is often underpinned with an inherent dark sensibility .
Distinguishing between ‘Glamour’ and ‘Beauty in a media saturated world it is now impossible to see where one ends and the other begins, the mixed media artworks play on iconography. Eye-catching and vivid, the works focus on the face using collage to highlight the grittier side of Hollywood life, using mixed materials and images to challenge the established norm of the “makeup” of celebrity.
FREE to attend
Exhibition staged by DuoVision.
