artists & participants
Get Off! is our first contemporary art exhibition featuring the work of established and emerging artists who investigate sexual titillation as a means to examine their relationship with pleasure in society. The exhibition, which takes an uplifting, humorous look at the age-old art of stimulation, is expressed in a variety of media ranging from video, sculpture, photography, painting, and performance.
Participating artists are Greg Curry, Jane Dickson, Lisa Dilillo, eteam, Terence Koh, Joseph Maida, Laurel Nakadate & Dora Malech, Tom Otterness, Txuspo Poyo, Mabi Revuelta, Karim Rashid, and Michael Schmelling & Matthew Salacuse.
The exhibition also features an installation of ephemera curated by leading art historian Kirby Gookin. It includes seminal ads, cartoons, drawings, and photocopies by post-war artists who investigate sexual titillation to provoke political and social responses from the viewer. Artists include Lynda Benglis, AA Bronson, Tee Corinne, Jeff Koons, Takashi Murakami, Carolee Schneemann and more.
An art historian, critic, curator, and public artist, Kirby Gookin is a staff critic for ArtForum and has written numerous articles and reviews on 20th Century art for Artscribe, Arts Magazine, Parkett, and other well-known gallery and museum publications.
Get Off! is organized by guest curator Robin Kahn, an artist whose own work examines such issues as gender conditioning and sexual identity. Her work appears in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA), the Whitney Museum, and the Brooklyn Museum, as well as at the National Museum of Women in the Arts, Smithsonian Institute in Washington, DC. Kahn's curatorial endeavors focus on the tenuous boundaries between artist and public. Her exhibitions, art anthologies and artist books have been reviewed in ArtForum, ID, Print Collectors Newsletter, World Art, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, International Herald Tribune, Elle, and Vogue, among others.
