Time Out says

In 1855, Walt Whitman wrote 'I Sing the Body Electric', a poem deconstructing the human body into its component parts ("The lung-sponges, the stomach-sac, the bowels sweet and clean" etc.) that argued for male and female equality. The American poet's creation was before its time in several senses, not least in its rejection of conventional gender divisions. It's now the inspiration behind this group exhibition of contemporary female artists who pick up where Walt left off and continue rethinking the female nude and male expectations of it.
