Doing your Dirty Work Two: a Sampler of Contemporary Art About Sex
Opening Reception Friday July 5, 7 – 10pm
Center for Sex and Culture
Despite San Francisco’s reputation for a sexually frank and diverse culture, art dealing with sexuality is as marginalized here as anywhere. The theme of our second annual juried show is much the same as the mission of the CSC gallery; to provide a space for work that addresses sexuality and sexual identity and upholds a high standard of artistic merit.
Doing Your Dirty Work aims to stand as evidence that art about sex is every bit as valid, complex, compelling, beautiful, ugly and sophisticated as art ever is. Our call for submissions, expressing this simple notion, generated hundreds of responses from all over the country. Many, as expected, were submissions from artists whose sexual work is excluded from their otherwise successful careers. Many were from artists whose careers are limited by the sexual content of their work.
We have selected art that runs from comical to carnivorous and from haute to hairy. Like The Center for Sex and Culture itself, there is something for almost everyone.
