Opening: Lust-The Fifth of the Seven Deadly Sins

The Seven Deadly Sins: Lust

Exhibition dates: April 19, 2015 – July 26, 2015

LUST, specifically as it applies to sexual relations, is here portrayed in overt imagery. Artists create paintings, videos and photographs exploring raw eroticism of a heterosexual, cross gender and homosexual model echoing the rawness of the Kama Sutra. Catherine Opie’s ‘Pieta’ borders on religious ecstasy, while Larry Clark’s ‘Tulsa Series’ documents raw sex within a drug ridden culture of lost youth.  In staging the exhibition at the HVCCA, works are chosen that present this cross section and that speak to a hard edged artistic approach to lust for ‘lust’s sake’ while powerfully portraying that which motivates us to seek the comfort of another.

In addition to the artists listed above included are works by Tony Matelli, Cindy Sherman, Ashley Bickerton, Beatrice Cussol, Entang Wiharso, and more.
