MA students from the Centre for Curatorial Studies at the University of Essex present Abject Subject.


This exhibition brings together artworks that investigate issues of representation and identity in relation to social expectations that control and repress. In doing so, the show aims unpack the complexities of the concept of shame. The dialogue established between the works on display will open up discussion about what it is that, in our seemingly liberated culture, can become an object of shame.

Abject Subject showcases contemporary photography and films by artists Sarah Maple, LaĆ­s Pontes, Milagros de la Torre, Melanie Bonajo, Jessica Lagunas and Natasha Caruana.
