Opening Reception – Sexxxhibition co-curated by Louis Trujillo and James Mullane
January 31, 2019
Join us for the opening reception of Sexxxhibition co-curated by Louis Trujillo and James Mullane on Thursday, January 31 from 5-8pm. Cultura Chocolate will be providing appetizers for the opening, and will also have naughty chocolates for sale.
What do you get when you cross the love and lust of Valentine’s Day with the blank, pure, virginal walls of the art world? You get the Sexxxhibition! Art Gym is thrilled to announce this new exhibition celebrating the process by which we all came to be…SEX.
When discussing the show, co-curators Trujillo and Mullane explained that as artists who create work of a sexual nature, they are often looked down upon by other artists for not creating highbrow enough art. While we are all very familiar with the nude as a concept throughout art history, once that nude turns sexual, it is considered significantly cheaper or even pornographic. The goal for them in the Sexxxhibition was to break down this notion and display artists who utilize the comical, playful, and even frisky side of sex to discuss more serious concepts. Because after all, sex is serious, and sex is seriously fun.
The exhibition features artwork by Corinna Espinosa, Esther Hernandez, James Mullane, Pansy Ass Ceramics, John Paradiso, Julio Pizana, Ryan Riedel, Peter Stevinson, John Tarantola, Louis Trujillo, and The Women’s Art League.
