Exhibitions on Display
Universe of Desire
Type. Swipe. Search. Upload. Download. Post. Stream. These are the new verbs of desire. Our most intimate thoughts, fantasies, and urges are now transmitted via electronic devices to rapt audiences all over the world. These transmissions—from sexts to personal webcam feeds—are anonymous yet personal, individual yet collective, everywhere and nowhere, and they are contributing to the largest sexual record to date. In short, desire has gone viral. But what does this mean? And what does it reveal about us? This exhibition explores these very questions through a lens of digital experiences by examining what we are searching for, how we do it, and what we leave behind on these electronic devices. In piecing this together, we begin to expose staggering truths about who we are and how we interact in this ever-changing world of modern sexuality. Universe of Desire is an exhibition about human desire as seen through the lens of digital behaviors.
F*ck Art: A Street Occupation at the Museum of Sex
In response to the growing anti-institution sentiment pervasive in our culture, the Museum of Sex has engaged a group of select street artist to occupy the museum’s third floor gallery. Expanding upon existing notions of the museum-going experience by pushing the boundaries of what artists create in a museum environment. Artist have mined the fringes of society and used the gallery space as a forum to create critical, provocative commentary around sexuality and its relationship to both human and cultural identity
The Sex Lives of Animals
This exhibition reveals sex is more than the drive to reproduce. The expanding knowledge of the natural world has revealed that animals participate in an astonishing array of sexual behaviors, where all conceivable sex acts and sexual partnerships exist. Animals engage in foreplay behaviors such as kissing, hugging, mutual and self-stimulation, oral sex and every kind of penetrative intercourse imaginable. Sex in the animal kingdom is just as complex and nuanced as it is for humans, and pleasure, it seems, is not restricted to the human realm.
After viewing the exhibits, guests can visit the museum store to discover unique Valentine’s Day gifts and enjoy an aphrodisiac drink in the OralFix Bar.
