Gorgeous Idea: Sex, Chocolate and Kimonos with Tina Takemoto
San Francisco, CA 94102
How do artists use food, sex, physicality and clothing to seduce and deceive the viewer? Tina Takemoto explores how race and sexuality are deployed in artworks presented in Gorgeous that engage with cross-dressing, masquerade, embodiment and ethnic drag.
Gorgeous Idea events are informal, impromptu in-gallery conversations facilitated by scholars, artists, filmmakers and writers who explore ideas arising from the artwork on view in the exhibition Gorgeous. Each facilitator will present an idea that piques his or her curiosity and host a session to investigate it through two or three artworks.
