BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- Artists from 24 states and three other countries will display their artwork beginning on May 28 in The Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender, and Reproduction 2010 Juried Art Show, held for the second year in the School of Fine Arts Gallery at Indiana University Bloomington.
Jurors selected nearly 100 pieces for the show after viewing 658 artworks submitted by more than 300 professional, amateur and student artists. 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 other jurors for the 2010 competition were Lisa D. Freiman, senior curator of contemporary art at the Indianapolis Museum of Art, and Garry Milius, associate curator at The Kinsey Institute.
This is the fifth annual juried show for the Kinsey Institute but the second held at SoFA Gallery. Because of the ever-increasing number of submissions, a larger space was needed to allow more works to be accepted for the exhibition.
The exhibition will open Friday, May 28 and continue through July 30. The opening reception will be held on Friday, May 28, from 7-9 p.m. at the SoFA Gallery.
To learn more about this year’s exhibition and previous juried art shows, visit The Kinsey Institute website. The SoFA Gallery is accessible to people with disabilities. Gallery hours Tuesday – Saturday, 12-4 p.m. Closed Sunday & Monday.
