Young Naturists And Nudists America

Dance Magazine

Some choreographers are asked about using nudity onstage, and their answers are great and interesting to read.

"In this day and age, when the naked body is constantly used in a sexualized or violent way, contemporary art and dance are some of the few places where we can still encounter it in a different, more neutral form. Art is a form of education. It’s through art that we learn what is beautiful, what is right and wrong. You don’t have a lot of opportunities to compare yourself to other bodies, and you can recognize yourself and your scars in others. I admire people who use the naked body to make a statement about humanity." — Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui

"I plan to incorporate nudity more in the future; maybe I needed a certain maturity. I find nudity fascinating, and it’s sad that it’s so taboo, because it questions our whole existence. My goal is to make a piece where the audience thinks: Why are we even wearing clothes?" — Alexander Ekman

Human Organs Formed with Wild Plant Arrangements by Camila Carlow

UK-based, Guatemalan-born artist Camila Carlow was not deterred by the complexity of the human body when she was developing her series Eye Heart Spleen. For the project, she transformed a handful of normally grotesque, bloody organs into an array of greenery and beautiful blossoms.

Oh my goodness this is fantastic

"If you have never tried to swim in the nude, you have missed out on an amazing experience. It sounds a little bit cliché, but the sun kissing your shoulders while the water tickles your toes? Heavenly. We spent a few hours there, and I do not think we stopped smiling once."

Great story of growing up with fat shaming and then finding body acceptance at the nude beach!
