October 17, 2014 - January 4, 2015
Friday, October 17, 6-8 PM
Duane Michals and Jared French will be included in this exhibition, curated by Jonathan David Katz, which establishes the centrality of the classical nude in the historical development of same-sex representation by following a chronological timeline of four major periods. The exhibition will contain nearly a hundred objects of sculpture, painting, drawing, photography, video, and engraving from the Museum's permanent collection, the Library of Congress, Smithsonian American Art Museum, New York Public Library, Godwin-Tern Bach Museum, Archives of American Art, Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, and many other organizations and private collections.
