Love’s Body – Rethinking Naked and Nude in Photography was held at the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography from November 1998 to January 1999. The exhibition demonstrated that in addition to acting as symbols of Eros or sex, nude photography can be used as a tool to reassess the visual dynamics of relationship or subjectivity to present new possibilities and meanings of the body. As a sequel to the 1st exhibition, Love’s Body 2, sexuality in the age of AIDS, will aim to present more clearly the problems created by contemporary representations of the body. This exhibition will present works that are powerful enough to have influenced aspects of art and photography while reappraising and redefining their meaning.
