Male Man

Male Man

Alun Rhys Jones’ newest exhibition Male Man investigates and deconstructs the traditional tropes of masculinity today with a series of works which analyse, question, and subvert both masculinity itself and its portrayal in mainstream media.

Explored through hyper real drawings, photography and installation, the artist captures a flawed push for perfection at a time in which masculinity itself appears to be crumbling.

In the words of the artist: "Masculinity is in flux. The effects of traditional masculinity on the male psyche have revealed the extent to which men are both the jailors and prisoners of their own emotional wellbeing. Gender stereotypes are being questioned and broken down allowing men to open up, to show emotion and be vulnerable."

The upcoming exhibition 'Male Man' will run from the 24th February to the 10th March 2020.

24 February–8 March
10am–5pm Daily
Bondi Pavilion Gallery


Exhibition Launch
Wednesday 25 February 6–8pm
