This ""no-holds barred"" volume surveys the vast array of images of sex and sexuality in contemporary art, finding sex in some surprising places and drawing some fascinating conclusions. Working outwards from the individual to the world Gray Watson looks at the focus on the body in contemporary art and at the important contributions of the feminist and queer art movements, moving on to uncover sex in the city, sex in nature, sex in the sacred and even sex in cyberspace. The artworks discussed range from playful, even ""romantic"" work by artists such as Carolee Schneeman, Yayoi Kusama and Sylvie Fleury to darker and more overt work by artists as different as Kiki Smith and Kenneth Anger. Looking into representations of ""taboo"" sexualities including voyeurism and sado-masochism Watson also discovers the surprising absence of ""the missionary position"" in contemporary art.

Book Description I.B.Tauris Co. Ltd., United Kingdom, 2008. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. In this no-holds barred volume Gray Watson surveys the vast array of images of sex and sexuality in contemporary art. He finds sex in some surprising places and draws some fascinating conclusions. His initial consideration of contemporary art s focus on the body leads to an exploration of the important contributions made by the feminist and queer movements. He uncovers sex in the city, sex in nature, and the intimate relationship between sex and the sacred. Looking into representations of taboo sexualities including sado-masochism, voyeurism and exhibitionism, Watson argues that such images offer clues to an understanding of much more than just sex. The art discussed ranges from the playful to the dark, from the shockingly overt to the poetically allusive, and includes work by artists such as Marina Abramovi, Nobuyoshi Araki, Louise Bourgeois, Gilbert George, Jeff Koons, and Carolee Schneemann.
