Vered Gallery in East Hampton presents #NSFW: BODIES, a group exhibition featuring figural works by both renown modern masters and contemporary artists, established as well as emerging. NSFW, the Internet acronym for "Not Safe For Work" playfully eludes to

Included in this exhibition are paintings, photographs and sculptures by Milton Avery, Willem de Kooning, David Hockney, Steven Klein, Eric Fischl, Larry Rivers, Man Ray, Robert Mapplethorpe, Ray Caesar, Colin Christian, Michael Dweck, William King, Adam Handler, Adam Miller, Ashley Maxwell, Tyler Pilote,
Peter Buchman and Jessica Lichtenstein among others.
Highlights in this exhibition include Larry Rivers' lyrical triumph, Ochre Dance, an homage to Matisse's seminal masterpiece La Danse. Case Study #13 image no. 01, a stunning photographic portrait of actors Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie as a modern family in crisis, by celebrated fashion photographer Steven Klein. And, Untitled 1969 (woman in high heels), a unique painted armature for an unrealized sculpture by Willem de Kooning.

Starr's artwork gives visibility to the invisible. She uses drawings and prints layered with video and sound to express the way the body reacts to different stimuli.
