MGEDT is delighted to be one of the beneficiary charities of the Body Wars exhibition taking place from 19 November – 9 December at the Bargehouse, Oxo Tower Wharf in London. This contemporary art exhibition will deal with the raw subject of eating disorders.
The exhibition will suggest that the media’s enormous influence, as well as that from the fashion, health, beauty and cosmetic industries, may be having devastating effects on men, women and children. Using different art mediums such as paint, drawing, sculpture, photography and film sourced from international artists, the viewer will be challenged in an educational and visual way to address the issues and to question whether these industries are major factors in contributing to the paranoia and neurosis of those suffering these diseases. Body Wars suggests that we are given our bodies at birth and spend our life dealing with the consequences. Our ‘ideal’ body is constantly demeaning our ‘actual’ body.
Tickets for the event are £12 for adults and £7.50 for students and can be purchased at www.bodywarsexhibition.com. Enter the word ‘Men Get Eating Disorders Too’ into the promotional code when booking and we will receive 10% of the ticket price.
