Kinsey Institute Art Exhibit and Open Reception "Naked Spaces: Architecture in Art from the Kinsey Institute Collection"

Drawing on the Kinsey Institute's permanent collections, Naked Spaces investigates the ways artists manipulate architectural representation to communicate ideas about sex, gender, and the erotic. Architectural form is used by artists working around the globe--and across time--as an invitation to view, but also as a plea for privacy; architectural space is used a framing device as well as screen. The diversity of artworks included in the exhibition creates an opportunity for viewers to consider the role played by the built environment in the construction of their own private and public identities.

The exhibition will include works by Toby Kaufmann, Andrey Avinoff, Michael Fingesten, Herbert Ascherman, Suzuki Harunobu, Clarence John Laughlin, Tom Bianchi, Clifford Raven Ingram, Max Kislinger, Rita Koehler, Emilio Sanchez, Edie Fake, Lehnert & Landrock, Arthur Tress, Félicien Rops, D. Keith Furon, Anne Roecklein, Ronald Searle, and Spencer Tunick.

Guest curator:  S. N. Johnson-Roehr, Rutgers University

The opening reception will be held on Friday, January 18, from 5:00 to 7:00.
