Best Retrospective Exhibit

Paint Made Flesh at the Frist Center

When Frist Center chief curator Mark Scala set out to organize the expansive figurative painting exhibit Paint Made Flesh, it's unlikely he knew he was about to score a hat trick. The challenging show attracted local audiences and media attention while simultaneously gathering kudos on a national level. More importantly, the exhibit is arguably the most articulate, personal vision the curator has organized, examining the role the figure and body continue to play in contemporary art while also illustrating a unique perspective on how ideas about beauty transcend the attractive as well as the fashionable.
