Event Description: Why do visual artists choose risky subject matter? Can these works be viewed through the lens of traditional art-making?  Artists and curators explore these and other questions, and illuminate the humor underlying both art-making and sex. Experience an interactive tour of the exhibits and re-evaluate your own assumptions about sex and art. The co-curated exhibit includes works by two emerging artists, Jedediah Johnson and  Kyle A. Herrington, alongside works from the Kinsey collection. A Q&A session moderated by Patrick Flaherty, Director of Exhibitions & Artist Service at the Indianapolis Art Center.

Presented by Indianapolis Art Center and Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender and Reproduction. 317-255-2464 or
