Exhibit in The Kinsey Institute Gallery

If you happen to be in Bloomington, Indiana, this Friday stop by the opening of Garry's new exhibit, Private Eyes: Amateur Works from The Kinsey Institute Collection.  The show explores the unique characteristics of homemade erotic artifacts. These one-of-a-kind items include drawings, paintings, carved figures, handmade cards, scrapbooks, fabric crafts, and altered coins from The Kinsey Institute’s permanent collection of art.   These “artworks”, spanning the naively playful to the transgressive, were intended for private consumption and created with specific individuals in mind, unlike mass-produced, commercially distributed pornography.  To date, these materials have received scant scholarly or sociological attention, and The Kinsey Institute is displaying the majority of these items for the first time.
