Editors Comments

If art fairs aren’t your thing and want something more intimate head on over to the Moore Building in the Design District where Larry Gagosian and Jeffrey Dietrich are presenting their exhibit, “Desire”. “Desire” explores modern and contemporary approaches to eroticism in art. One of the very earliest and most fundamental artistic themes, eroticism has served to reflect the social mores and cultural values of different civilizations. As the representation of eroticism has evolved in society, boundaries are tested, bringing to life artistic fantasies and unprecedented imagery. Eroticism reinvents itself with every subsequent generation. Today, for example, the promiscuous overexposure of nude bodies on the Internet and television has forever altered the very notion of erotic representation”.
