“Sex Drive,” “Mike Howard: Good Ole Boy,” and ACAC studio artists open studios. It’s a great time at ACAC with food, drink, and plenty of art.
“Sex Drive” presents contemporary artworks that address sexuality across a panoply of forms. Using photography, drawing, painting, video, sculpture, and installation, the participating artists bring their own pleasures and political dispositions to bear on identity and gender, romance and lust, religious and legal strictures, and private and public scandals. Sex Drive asks us to consider the conventions that govern sexuality, as well as its unruly power. A version of this exhibition was presented at Cantor Fitzgerald Gallery, Haverford College, Haverford, PA, Jan 28-Mar 4, 2011.
Artists include Lisa Alembik, Larry Jens Anderson, Ion Birch, Vertna Bradley, Lynn Cazabon, Patricia Cronin, Tracey Emin, Steve Gianakos, Leon Golub, Wayne Koestenbaum, Leigh Ledare, Christopher Makos, Melanie Manchot, Laurel Nakadate, Forest McMullin, Michael Patterson-Carver, Mira Schor, Susan Silas, and Nancy VanDevender.
“Mike Howard: Good Ole Boy” is a survey of paintings by Mike Howard, an artist who grew up in Phenix City, Alabama before moving to New York in the early 1970s. Howard was a vital figure in the East Village scene of the 1980s, using images of consumer items, hunting and fishing, sports, and political history in his expressionistic works on canvas
