Gendering Desire: Liberation, Power, and Pleasure

October 2 – 24, 2014




Nancy Pantirer is pleased to have her new piece, Ring My Bell included in Gendering Desire: Liberation, Power, and Pleasure at the Koehnline Museum of Art from October 2 – 24, 2014.

From food to the erotic, desire takes many different forms, and gender is implicated in the process. How does gender and sexuality affect our experiences of passion and pleasure? Do patriarchal and heteronormative power structures suppress human desire? Can rigid binaries of male/female, gay/straight, be transformed into a more fluid, flexible, liberated experience of desire? How do we experience passion and pleasure beyond the sexual? And do women really love chocolate more than men?

Public Reception: Thursday, October 2, 5 – 8 p.m.
