Art exhibitions are a source of great joy and inspiration for the many who visit them.
But as time goes on and the number of visitors continues to grow, so too do the bodies of the art.
Artists have long been known for the body of work they create, but for the first time in human history, the bodies they create are being used as a canvas for social commentary.
In a new exhibit at the National Gallery of Art, curator Joanna L. Smith and other artists have created a collection of body parts, including skulls, genitals, teeth and even a hand.
Smith will be showing these body parts in a gallery exhibit on the history of art in 2017.
The exhibition, called “Body Parts of the Body,” will be on display through May 1 at the gallery.
Smith said that although her intention with the exhibit was to give people a snapshot of the evolution of art and culture over the past 200 years, the body parts and the bodies themselves have become so important in our contemporary society that they now appear in a museum, gallery or art museum.
“They are a part of our culture, and we have to acknowledge and respect that as well,” she said.
Body parts are not only a part, Smith said, but they’re part of art.
In a recent interview, Smith spoke about how she began her work with the body, which is considered the foundation of our art form.
She said the idea was to create a collection that would help us understand and appreciate art, but also to understand how our bodies are created, what we look like and how they are shaped.
Smith said she started out by looking at the faces of her students, and how she was able to identify the face of the person who would eventually be the subject of her work.
For example, when Smith started with the human body, she noticed that people tended to be more masculine, Smith explained.
I was like, ‘OK, there’s this one person, this is my face,’ and I was like ‘Wow, it’s a masculine face.’
“So I was just trying to understand what that meant in terms of male anatomy.
It’s like an internal female anatomy, and that’s just kind of fascinating to me.””
It was like a complete reversal of what I thought was normal and what people were supposed to be.
It’s like an internal female anatomy, and that’s just kind of fascinating to me.”
Smith said some of the people who have participated in the exhibition have been working on their own body parts since they were babies, and it’s not uncommon to see them in museum exhibits.
“I’ve actually had a couple of people that I know who have just started working on this body part thing after they were born,” she explained.
“So, I think that it’s interesting to see, at this stage in human evolution, there are people who are trying to do something that hasn’t been done before, and I think it’s just wonderful.”
Smith and her team plan to include body parts of famous artists, celebrities and people who inspire her.
A body in the works for the upcoming exhibition includes the body and face of Madonna, who died at the age of 54, and of Elvis Presley, who is 93.
Also on display in the exhibit will be the head of Bill Cosby, a comedian and author who died in a Philadelphia hospital at the young age of 88.
This year’s exhibition will also include the face and body of a man who was murdered in Los Angeles, and an art installation by renowned artist James Broussard.
Broussards work is a series of sculptures that have been placed in different locations around the world.
He created these works by combining parts of the heads of different animals, which have become a common practice for artists.
In one of the installations, Broustards head is placed on top of a skull, while the other is placed over a penis.
Broustard’s work has become so popular that it has been turned into a film called, “Headless.”
“He’s kind of like the most celebrated artist in the world, and this is his head,” Smith said.
“And that’s kind a great tribute to him.”
Smith described Brousted’s work as “pretty surreal, and really amazing.”
She added that her hope is that by the time the exhibition is done, people will appreciate what Brousts art has meant to them.
“If people can look at it and understand that it was actually a real person, they will say, ‘I really appreciate it,'” Smith said of Brouston.
As for the art pieces in the collection, Smith plans to make them available to the public.
