Tonight at 5:30, The Galleries at IUPUI Herron School of Art and Design will be hosting an Emerging Artist Series with Brooklyn native photographer, body positivity activist and visual artist Tarik Carroll. He will give a lecture at Eskenazi Hall’s Basile Auditorium. The event will also be streamed live online. The event is free to attend and kicks off the opening of Carroll’s exhibition, EveryBODY IS A GOOD BODY: The RE-formation of Beauty Standards. 

The exhibition will be at the Marsh Gallery from March 23 through April 26. Photographs from Carroll’s “EveryMAN Project,” will be on view at the exhibition. The ongoing project questions societal norms of masculinity and aims to create a safe space for men struggling with self-hate. Carroll is working to promote body positivity for all people, and knows the struggles of not feeling confident in his own skin. His work has been featured in Teen Vogue, PAPER, and Afro Punk. 

Carroll is the first featured artist in the Emerging Artist Series. The series aims to support artists from all over the world through lectures, residencies, and exhibitions while also providing learning opportunities to students, faculty, and the public. Head to Carroll’s website to check out his portfolio. Registering and more information for the event can be found here.
