On the occasion of the current exhibition Hans Schärer: Madonnas and Erotic Watercolors, join us at New York’s Swiss Institute on Wednesday, December 9 for an artist talk celebrating KALEIDOSCOPE’s recent Art&Sex Edition, a special themed issue dedicated to all expressions of sexuality as addressed in contemporary art and visual culture.

The talk is based and expands on “Sex on Paper,” a visual feature curated by New York-based painter Mathew Cerletty in the Art&Sex Edition, consisting of a selection of works on paper that “playfully reflect some of the many complications of human sexuality: fantasy, twisted obsession, unbridled lust, sweet vulnerability, and of course the simple beauty of a physical connection.” 

Alongside Cerletty, participants to the talk, moderated by KALEIDOSCOPE’s newly-appointed associate editor Alexander Shulan, include featured artists Jonah Koppel, Emily Mae Smith and Betty Tompkins.

KALEIDOSCOPE’s Art&Sex Edition will be available to browse and buy at the ARTBOOK @ Swiss Institute bookstore.
