Phallus. Norm & Form

GUM Gent University Museum & Botanical Garden

24.03.2022 - 8.01.2023

The exhibition Phallus. Norm & Formwill focus on the male member. Is that putting it on a pedestal? Maybe - but only so that it can also be pulled down. One thing is sure: Phallus. Norm & Form will be smashing all sorts of stereotypes.

In keeping with its commitment to provide a “Forum for Science, Doubt & Art”, GUM’s new exhibition presents a dialogue between science and art. The work of national and international researchers (among others, Piet Hoebeke, Guy T’Sjoen, Joz Motmans, Alexis Dewaele, Marieke Dewitte, Patricia Brennan, Nicole Prause, Helen O’Connell and Jasmine Abdulcadir) is joined by that of artists (including Berlinde de Bruyckere (BE), Maria Fernanda Cardoso (CO/AU), Murielle Scherre (BE), David Hockney (UK), Grayson Perry (UK), Man Ray (US) and Jean Tinguely (CH)). The Ghent visual artist Sofie Muller will be showing new work specially created for the glasshouses in the Botanical Garden.
