Disturbing Innocence

25.10 2014–31.1 2015, The FLAG Art Foundation, New York, USA

The FLAG Art Foundation is pleased to present Disturbing Innocence, a group exhibition curated by artist Eric Fischl.

Disturbing Innocence features over 50 historical and contemporary artists whose use of dolls, toys, mannequins, robots, and other surrogates forms a deep and powerfully expressive genre. The exhibition poses profound questions surrounding social constructs of youth, beauty, transformation, violence, sexuality, gender, identity, and loneliness. Inspired by Fischl’s own childhood in suburban Long Island, NY, and his early career as an artist working in New York City in the 1980’s, Disturbing Innocence presents a subversive and escapist world at odds with the values and pretensions of polite society.
