Seduced Art & Sex from Antiquity to Now

While in London, until the 27th of January 2008, go and visit the Barbican Art Gallery with this most amazing art exhibition. Erotic art and erotism is everywhere and in any art form, in any age.
Jeff Koons with his Made in Heaven series is hardly my preferred artist, but I have chosen him to illustrate my post as he seems to me the most vulgar in expression. I guess sexuality was the same always, and continues to be the same in the years to come, yet seeing kitsch mixed with sex, a thin line from art to porn, seems to be the key to this exhibition.
