Reception: The Kinsey Institute 2010 Juried Art Show
May 28, 2010 (7:00 PM - 9:00 PM)
Location: SoFA Gallery
The School of Fine Arts (SoFA) Gallery at Indiana University is pleased to announce The Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender, and Reproduction 2010 Juried Art Show. This exhibition will open Friday, May 28 and continue through Friday, July 30, 2010. An opening reception for the 2010 Juried Art Show will be held on Friday, May 28, from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm at the School of Fine Arts Gallery. All events are free and open to the public.
This contemporary art exhibition features paintings, prints, photographs, ceramics, wearable art, metalwork, books, sculpture, fiber art, and video installations by a mix of local, national, and international artists. The artworks explore themes related to sex, gender, eroticism, reproduction, sexuality, romantic relationships, the politics of sex and gender, and the human figure. The jurors for the 2010 competition were Lisa D. Frieman, Ph. D., Senior Curator of Contemporary Art at the Indianapolis Museum of Art, Betsy Stirratt, Director of the SoFA Gallery, and Garry Milius, Associate Curator at The Kinsey Institute. Stirratt feels “The Kinsey juried exhibit is a great way to see the enormous range of contemporary art being made about sexuality. Not all the works in the show can be labeled ‘erotic art’; the breadth of the art represented includes a variety of approaches and genres.”
Although this is the fifth annual Kinsey Institute Juried Art Show, the exhibition is marking its second year with the SoFA Gallery. Due to the ever-increasing number of submissions, a larger space was needed to allow more works to be accepted for the exhibition.
