Elizabeth Malaska’s work is concerned with the ubiquitous and normalized use of the often-naked female form throughout art history, a body that frequently has been depicted as an object on display. Through a variety of tactics, her paintings aim to recontextualize these bodies, give the figures greater agency, and challenge viewers to question their own power and position.

Program begins at 6 p.m. $5 members, $19.99 non-members, $16.99 seniors. Space is limited. Tickets available online or on site.
