Expressive Bodies: Contemporary Art Photography from The Kinsey Institute, is an exhibition of original prints from the Institute's permanent collection. Expressive Bodies surveys the use of the photographic medium by contemporary artists to express ideas about sexuality and gender, and to explore the visual impact of the human figure. This exhibition features photographs by established artists such as Laura Aguilar, Herbert Ascherman, Erwin Olaf, Pierre et Gilles, Joel-Peter Witkin, Herb Ritts, Michael Rosen, Arthur Tress, Michael Macku, Ivan Pinkava, Mariette Pathy Allen, and Frank Yamrus, as well as talented photographers at the start of their artistic careers.

The art collection at The Kinsey Institute is renowned for its extensive holdings in vernacular erotic photography. The Institute actively collects contemporary photography by artists from around the world and continually exhibits artwork that provides new perspectives on sex and gender.

NAKED MEN
“I almost never draw a completely naked man. He has to have at least a pair of boots or something on. To me, a fully dressed man is more erotic than a naked one. A naked man is, of course beautiful, but dress him in black leather or a uniform — ah, then he is more than beautiful, then he is sexy!”
