My Body’s an Exhibition

Poster and exhibition graphics for Christopher Matthews’s My Body’s an Exhibition at Sadler’s Wells. In this immersive event, multidisciplinary installations are scattered throughout the building in the foyers, studios, stages and backstage spaces, and explore themes of gender, class structure, intersections of the classical and contemporary, icon vs self and pop culture.

Taking the Janet Jackson lyrics my body’s an exhibition baby from the song Feedback (2008) as inspiration, audiences are invited to explore the role of the spectator when observing the body as an object, as well as how bodies are seen, and what it means to be seen. Alongside this, Matthews asks how history and popular culture collide, or coincide.
