Exhibition Preview: Risqué, Dirty Little Pictures
Opening tonight at LBMA (the Long Beach Museum of Art) is Risqué, Dirty Little Pictures, curated by Nathan Spoor and Jeff McMillan. The erotic works will be displayed on the museum’s second-floor Kilsby Gallery – a little above children’s immediate perusal. It is always wonderful to see a “museum” hosting a show with an incredible roster of real contemporary, New Brow artists, so get on down to Long Beach if you can.
The curators chose 40 contemporary artists and invited them to execute their vision of what “risqué” meant to them. The question the artists pondered: What makes it “dirty” or “naughty?” In each case, how far each artist would push the subject or explore the theme was a powerful motivation. Risqué is accompanied by a limited edition portfolio containing each work included in the exhibition.
