Kink & Politics

Kink and Politics: The Ties That Bind, an exhibition curated by Wardell Milan. On view from June 22 through July 28, 2017, the exhibition explores the ideas of sexual deviance and government legislation - which Milan finds associations between in the work of the ten participating artists.

According to the curator: "A closer look at the ideas of kink and politics feels seasonable as sexuality and the notion of gender transitions are questioned, as immigration and borders all are disputed, and as the 'other' perennially creates safe spaces with the hope of bringing forth the feeling of freedom. It is the consideration of how moral and social conformity and legislative politics serve as a structure to champion as well as to challenge and revoke."
