Because art with sex always clears TI's calender: The Sex In The City group show. Curated by Dean Daderko and Marina Adams. September 15-December 2, 2007
Dumbo Art Center
Voila a contextualization of the show from one of its curators Dean Daderko :
In an age dominated by digital connectivity and networking, Dean Daderko and Marina Adams present an exhibition that addresses our most fundamental human connection activity: sex. “The City” of the title is New York, or Montreal, or San Antonio - anywhere you are, the locus of connection and community. And with its potential for sensual potency, it is no surprise that Sex in the City is also a celebration of painting and the myriad forms with which it tangles.
Dean Daderko writes: "Sex in the City was born when Marina Adams approached me and asked me to collaborate with her to make an exhibition. I remember her saying “I already have a title” and as soon as the words came out of her mouth, I was hooked. I couldn’t say no. Rather than narrowing our options, we chose to cast a broad net inflected with the specific, personal grain of sexuality. Loose framework. So many ways to say “yes.”

You'll want to snap up the Marilyn Minter's monograph published by Gregory R. Miller & Co asap, because its a surefire collector's item. Minter's name has been in recent circulation amongst the fashion press because of Tom Ford's decision to drop her imagery of the Tom Ford For Men fragrance. As a spokesperson for Tom Ford Beauty announced to Women's Wear Daily, “We loved the original Marilyn Minter images, but while on a shoot with [Terry Richardson] in Milan, we decided that a sharper, more graphic approach clearly communicated the bold and provocative mood of the fragrance.” A more graphic approach doesn't necessarily mean "clean lines" though. The new ads are apparently to feature the desireable fragrance bottle placed tightly in between a woman's crotch.
