The definition of sex and sexuality has and always will be open to interpretation. Each individual has his/ her own definition of what is considered sexual. What factors are recognized in the process defining something as ‘sexual’ or ‘erotic’?
The Sex Show attempts to push the boundaries of the definition of sex. It approaches the topic of sex from all angles, exhibiting works that vary on a broad scale, from art that is more explicit to art that is more elusive in content. Not only does The Sex Show contain a wide variety of sex-related themes and contents, it also exhibits the use of abundantly different mediums such as film, sculpture, collage and paint.
Participating Artists include Victoria Day, Rosalind Been, Morgan Skinner, Kestin Cornwall, Jada DAversa , Lisa Marie Meschimo, Amanda Boulos, Jenny Li , Shellie Zhang, Patrick Lemieux , Ana Moutinho , Philip Hare, Gilles Morin, Sarah Chomko Aidan Cowling , Ben Benedict , Norman Barney and Maryann Murphy , Christopher Arnoldin ,Allan Parke , Sara Perosa , Vjosana Shkurti and others.
