If It’s Antique Is It Still Porn?

If It’s Antique Is It Still Porn? | For Art's Sake-1 | Scoop.it

If you thought the matter of who makes art exploring the issue of abortion difficult, perhaps the following antique erotic artworks will be too upsetting. That’s your warning to leave.

 

For these works go beyond the issue of basic nudity in art, beyond even the matter of erotic art, to  explore sexuality along with religion and what appears to be the opulence of wealth.

Planting Frida Kahlo's Botanical Paradise in the Bronx

Planting Frida Kahlo's Botanical Paradise in the Bronx | For Art's Sake-1 | Scoop.it

"Plants and flowers appeared throughout Frida Kahlo’s paintings, and although interpreting her art regularly evokes her biography of illness, injury, pain, and tumultuous love, the first exhibition to examine her work from a botanical perspective opens this week at a garden. Constructing a tribute to the flora of her Casa Azul home in Coyoacán south of Mexico City, which she shared off and on with muralist Diego Rivera, the New York Botanical Garden (NYBG) in the Bronx pairs this assembly of cacti, succulents, perennials, and other leafy specimens from her garden with a small exhibition of 14 drawings and paintings."

 

Frida Kahlo: Art, Garden, Life opens at the New York Botanical Garden (2900 Southern Boulevard, The Bronx) on May 16 and continues through November 1.

Sleeping Hanging Bats "Wonderful Flying Foxes" Antique Illustration Giclee Print on Vintage Paper Maroon Matted 5 x 7 Ready To Frame!

Sleeping Hanging Bats "Wonderful Flying Foxes" Antique Illustration Giclee Print on Vintage Paper Maroon Matted 5 x 7 Ready To Frame! | For Art's Sake-1 | Scoop.it

A colony or cloud of bats hangs upside down in this illustrated gravure print from 1887 entitled "Wonderful Flying Foxes."

We've lovingly scanned the antique illustration and reproduced it for you as a giclee print -- on vintage paper, to keep the feel of the original.

What's more, it is already matted and ready to insert inside any 5 by 7 inch fame.

The matting is in a rich maroon or burgundy shade in a matte finish, which really compliments the tanned old paper.

Body Talk: Feminism, Sexuality and the Body in the Work of Six African Women Artists | WIELS, Brussels

Body Talk: Feminism, Sexuality and the Body in the Work of Six African Women Artists | WIELS, Brussels | For Art's Sake-1 | Scoop.it

Body Talk addresses issues of feminism, sexuality and the body, as they play themselves out in the work of a generation of women artists from Africa active since the early 1990s. 

 

Bringing together artists from different parts of the continent, this group exhibition strives to define and articulate notions of feminism and sexuality in the work of women artists whose body (their own or that of others) serves as a tool, a representation or a field of investigation. In their work, the body manifests itself, whether sequentially or simultaneously, as a model, support, subject or object.

Zap! Pow! Snap! "WonderWomen" at the Katherine Nash Gallery

Zap! Pow! Snap! "WonderWomen" at the Katherine Nash Gallery | For Art's Sake-1 | Scoop.it

She has superhuman strength, her wounds heal instantly and her collection of weaponry includes the Lasso of Truth and a razor-sharp tiara to throw at her enemies. Who wouldn't like to be Wonder Woman, at least occasionally? Okay, the bustier, tight blue panties, and high-heeled boots might be a little uncomfortable, but her contradictory qualities - part super hero, part pinup girl - have mesmerized us since she came on the scene in 1941.

 

No wonder the enduring pop culture icon makes a great focal point for a group exhibition at the University of Minnesota's Katherine E. Nash Gallery entitled "WonderWomen." Co-sponsored by the University of Minnesota, the Minneapolis College of Art and Design and the Film Society of Minneapolis St. Paul, the show features work by women artists from around the world who are inspired or influenced by comics, animation or popular culture.

Donna Sharrett’s Art of History, Remembrance and Time

Donna Sharrett’s Art of History, Remembrance and Time | For Art's Sake-1 | Scoop.it

"Donna Sharrett’s work is both emblematic of its time and difficult to classify. At first glance, it may appear to be quintessentially postmodernist, offering a borrower-conjurer’s cornucopia of found objects and unusual materials that have been plucked out of their original, utilitarian settings and repurposed. At the same time, though, Sharrett’s mixed-media abstract art is not intentionally postmodernist at all..."

 

Donna Sharrett: Love Songs and Sampling continues at Pavel Zoubok Gallery (531 West 26th Street, Chelsea, Manhattan) through February 7, 2015.
