Gallery 210 exhibit focuses on eating disorders
According to the National Eating Disorders Association, millions of men and women in the United States struggle with anorexia, bulimia, binge eating and other eating disorders. “THIN,” the current exhibit on display in Gallery 210 at the University of Missouri-St. Louis, focuses on this pervasive cultural problem through the award-winning work of photographer and filmmaker Lauren Greenfield.
The multimedia exhibit weaves together Greenfield’s large-scale portraits, recordings, narrative texts, educational facts and a 14-minute selection of scenes from her film documentary “THIN,” which profiles patients at Renfrew Center in Coconut Creek, Fla.
In advance of National Eating Disorders Awareness Week (Feb. 21-27), Greenfield, Gallery 210 Director Terry Suhre and exhibit co-curator Trudy Wilner Stack were interviewed on “Cityscape” on St. Louis Public Radio | 90.7 KWMU. Click here to listen to the interview. (QuickTime Player is required.)
