Ward of the State: Tony Ward, Artists' Muse,
a group exhibition of works centered on shared muse, Tony Ward.
Called "male icon of the century" by Paris Vogue, Ward has been the subject of numerous photographers and designers, including Bruce Weber, Jim French, Steven Meisel, Herb Ritts, Ellen Von Unwerth, Karl Lagerfeld, Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana, Calvin Klein, and numerous others. Ward has also appeared in Madonna's book Sex, as well as in her hyper-sexualized music videos.
As a collective work of art, Ward of the State reveals Ward as the embodiment of ideals of masculinity, beauty, brutality, fashion, and sexual ambiguity.
Heath Daniels is at the Ward of the State opening night reception. Heath interviews contributing artists Robert Standish, Rick Castro, Michael Gregg Michaud, Jules Muck, Ray Turner, Maya Mercer, Estevan Oriol, and Paul Rusconi.
Curated by Robert Standish, the exhibition highlights a diverse collection of images by artists whose lives and careers have at various points been impacted by Tony Ward, as subject, muse and myth.
