TheGreatNude Invitational to Highlight Artworks Featuring the Nude Form
"Red" by Daniel Maidman.
NEW YORK, NY.-, a web-magazine founded in 2007, will present the TheGreatNude Invitational on the mezzanine level of the Roger Smith Hotel in NYC from May 13 to 16, 2010. The Invitational will highlight artworks featuring the nude form - from the academic to the cutting edge – with works from over 20 established and emerging contemporary artists from around the world. Artists from France, Germany, Norway, Poland and the US are on exhibit (see Exhibitor List below) which features a special exhibition in cooperation with The Nerdrum Institute entitled Corpus Hermeticum, curated by Leah Poller, featuring legendary artist Odd Nerdrum, along with Adam Miller, Richard T. Scott and Fedele Spadafora.

Opening Night Reception on Thursday, May 13th is from 6pm to 9pm; Live Nude Sketch Parties on May 14th and 15th. Come draw the models with exhibiting artists or just have a drink and view the Invitational. On Sunday May 16th, join our Panel discussion The Nude in Contemporary Art with exhibiting artists, and then join Sherry Camhy presenting two drawing workshops sponsored by Faber-Castell. Discounts for Lilly’s Bar & Restaurant downstairs are available and The Roger Smith Hotel is offering a discount of 10% on any during the event, which includes Full-Access Pass to the Invitational. See Schedule/Tickets online in order to purchase advance tickets for reception, events, hotel package and other information.

Donald Kuspit, noted curator, writer and Invitational Host Committee member, in his essay The Nude Ascending, sets the tone for the Invitational -- The nudes in this exhibition do not comfortably settle down in pre-ordained grooves of art, but convey the élan vital of the body, promising the aesthetic perfection of ideal beauty—the sensuous and sensual subtlety of the body sublimated in epitomizing form--without denying the vulnerability of the all too human living flesh. In other words, they are as full of mind as they are ripe with matter.

EXHIBITING ARTISTS: Doug Auld, Meredith Bergmann, Sherry Camhy, Bob Clyatt, Janet A. Cook, Camilla Fallon, Tapp Francke, Chambliss Giobbi, Scott Goodwillie, Krzysztof Izdebski-Cruz, Mary Larsen, Daniel Maidman, Walter Robinson, Paula Rubino, Eric Sonntag, Nicolas Turner, Francine Turk, Marc Vinciguerra, Jeffrey Wiener. Corpus Hermeticum: Odd Nerdrum, Adam Miller, Richard T. Scott and Fedele Spadafora.
