Interview: Carolyn Drake Questions the Myths of Masculinity in “Men Untitled”

Source Juxtapoz Magazine – Juxtapoz Magazine – Home 

Carolyn Drake’s new body of work, Men Untitled, explores her relationship to the many myths that define and preserve masculinity across American culture. On view now at the Fondation Henri Cartier-Bresson in Paris and recently published as a book by TBW, the work asks a variety of critical questions in relation to manhood. What defines being a man? Toughness and strength? Assertiveness and dominance? Is that really true? What do these myths mean? Who do they hurt? When do they help? And most critically, what happens when they disappear and dissolve?
