Ars Homo Erotica
11 June – 5 September 2010
A pioneering, multimedia exhibition which offers a radically different approach to the history of art, rethinking and queering the canons of representation. The exhibition reveals the significance of homoerotic themes and the role of homoerotic aesthetics, present in art from antiquity to today. It explores the rich and varied collections of the National Museum in Warsaw, as well as presents contemporary works by Central-Eastern European artist, commissioned especially for this show. Ars Homo Erotica is the first exhibition in Central-Eastern Europe that focuses on this subject. It embraces the idea of a museum as a critical institution, contributing to the debate on key issues of contemporary public life.
