Your Social Life, At Home and Abroad

Hello my dear humongous readership,

This week is very busy, with tomorrow's Edgar Arceneaux book launch at LAXart, and Matthieu Laurette's opening at Deweer Art Gallery in Belgium this coming Saturday (pictured above, please click on link for the info).

And on Thursday evening, here in LA, a treat: a free lecture at LACMA by Kevin Salatino on Fuseli's erotic drawings. See press release below.
I can only urge you to attend because:
-a) Fuseli's drawings are amazing, erotic or not
-b) Kevin is an hilarious speaker, if very scholarly, and he is such a treat as an orator/speaker his lecture shouldn't be missed. And, it's free!

Fuseli's Phallus: Drawing Sex in 18th-Century Rome
Kevin Salatino, Curator of Prints and Drawings, LACMA

Thursday, November 8 | 7:00 pm

This lecture closely examines a remarkable group of erotic drawings made by the great Swiss-English artist, Henry Fuseli, while resident in Rome in the 1770s. Placing these drawings in their larger historical and cultural context, as well as probing the relationship between drawing and meaning, the lecture argues for a broader consideration of pornography as a liberating force in Enlightenment Europe and the important role that Fuseli played in that liberation.

Please note: some material may be considered objectionable.
