Is it art or is it filth? Well, we’re kind of hoping for both.
It’s being called the hottest ticket of the autumn and it is to the Barbican’s new exhibition called Seduced – colon – Art and Sex from Antiquity to Now. Included withinside said exhibition you will find works of art not suitable for an audience under the age of 18. Oh, good…
Going back – ooh – ever such a long way, back to when them Greeks used to like to put pictures of boys bummin’ on the sides of their kitchenware, Seduction takes in saucy by the likes of everyone from Fragonnard through Japanese watercolours to gayers like Francis Bacon, Andy Warhol and Robert Mapplethorpe (that’s one of his up there) to provide ‘the historical and cultural framework to explore the boundaries of acceptability in art’.
It opens on Friday at the Barbican (quite hard to find unless you’re following that funny yellow line) and tickets (18s only, you kids) will cost you eight golden coins. There’s also a Seduced film season going on… No open wanking allowed.
