The exhibition brings together diverse works that depict, reference, or engage the human figure through three primary themes: the political body, the physical body, and the performative body. Object Lessons II invites multiple lines of discussion across the disciplines about issues of representation, race, class and gender, agency, propaganda, performance, production, and consumption.

This exhibition is a collaboration with the Hamiltonian Gallery along with Hamiltonian Artists, a non-profit career incubator for the next generation of contemporary visual artists. It features new work by the 2012 Hamiltonian Fellows: Amy Boone-McCreeshMilana BraslavskyBilly FriebeleNora HowellAnnette Isham,Matthew MannJoshua Wade SmithTimothy Thompson, and Jerry Truong. The theme of the exhibition is based on the Jorgen Leth / Lars Von Trier documentary, The Five Obstructions. The Fellows made obstructions for each other's work based on a summer 2012 studio visit and discussion. The obstructions operate as useful critiques of existing work as well as a challenge to future work. This playful yet meaningful exercise offered each artist the opportunity to step outside of self-imposed rules, habits, or routines. AU studio art professor and co-director of AU’s MFA program Tim Doud served as the mentor for the group.
