Sexuality in Contemporary Society, Provenance Center
Provenance Center announces the opening reception, on Saturday, October 27, 2012, from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m., of an exhibition titled "Sexuality in Contemporary Society." This exhibit will run from October 27, 2012 until November 25, 2012. Provenance Center is located at 165 State Street, New London, Conn.
This is a multi-media show featuring local, national and International Artists seeking to answer the question: What is the essence of human sexuality?
Sexuality has been a driving and formative influence throughout history. Issues of contemporary sexuality exist in a rapidly changing climate of norms and expectations. What was considered typically male or female, even a decade ago, is quickly evolving, driven by a wide range of social forces. In modern times, issues of sexuality have often been associated with civil rights and the ongoing struggle of certain groups to shake off the burden of social, economic and political oppression. Nonetheless, despite its consistently controversial nature, sexuality remains an intensely subjective dimension of human life.
Each of the art works in this show bring both personal and ideological perspectives, as each artist seeks to address particular aspects of their individual sexuality while presenting the phenomena of human sexuality through the lenses of artistic expression.
