NY Studio Gallery is pleased to present Hotter Than July: A Sexploration, a journey into what feels good and what gets us off. This group exhibition represents sex without judgment or shame. Gustav Klimt said, “All art is erotic.”  Sexual pleasure, like a powerful piece of art, can carry the participant to a new level of consciousness. When choosing work for the show, the curator’s reaction had to be visceral, a raw response to each artist’s sexual odyssey about pleasure, vulnerability, nakedness, fun and enjoyment.

In the early 90’s, while Madonna was producing her SEX book, ex-porn actresses turned performance artists Annie Sprinkle and Veronica Vera formed a new movement called Post Porn Modernism. Believing that sex should be a positive experience they declared a war against pornographic censors’ anti-fun, anti-love and anti-life messages in their manifesto. This past decade, photographer Terry Richardson, along with other sexual provocateurs, have tested us even more. Little by little we accept pornography in our art. However, much of this work either leaves no room for the imagination, or not as alluring simply because it feels too… real. Hotter Than July flirts with you, fucks with you a little and leaves you wanting more.
