Summer Heat July 15 – September 9, 2011

Sexuality and gender have been favorite subjects of artists since art’s inception – think of classical Greek sculptures of the ideal male form, the female lure in Botticelli’s works, coquettish Danae rendered by Rembrandt, Fragonard’s young lady who kicks off her shoe, gender bending performances of the 60s, Mapplethorpe’s photography…  The issue of gender and sexuality remains a subject of profound interest for artists, and the visual outcome of this interest continues to intrigue audiences worldwide.

Summer Heat continues in the same vein.  This exhibition explores various aspects of sexuality and gender in today’s Information Age.  Issues of ambiguity, mutability, social acceptance and the dichotomy between the sexes will be examined through means of images, objects, performances, videos and public displays of affection.  Summer Heat will serve as a sexual journey for the viewer allowing the gallery goer to explore their own sexuality through the works in the exhibition.
