  • MATERIALKINK, a group exhibition of contemporary art examining the intersection between materiality and alternative sexualities.

    Curated by Chicago-based artist José Santiago Pérez, MATERIALKINK features artworks that expand the boundaries of erotic art through contemporary explorations of the materialities that accompany and structure the lifeworlds and diverse practices of radical sex. Matter, desire, and power exchange are simultaneously celebrated and examined through this gathering of artworks spanning painting, sculpture, mixed media, photography, video, textile, and installation. Artists in this exhibition incorporate rope, nylon, wax, rubber, fabric, furniture, and leather in ways that evoke the desiring body and its erotic engagement with the substances of kinky sex.

    MATERIALKINK features works by Michael Blake (Brooklyn), Chloe Cooper (Portland, OR), Clarita Lulić (Chile/UK), Luis Mejico (Chicago), James Murray (Chicago), David Nasca (Chicago), Betsy Odom (Chicago) Heather Raquel Phillips (Philadelphia), Tamara Santibañez (Brooklyn), Lauren Steinberg (Chicago), Vincent Tiley (Brooklyn), Katie Vota (Chicago), Jade Williams (Chicago), and Derrick Woods-Morrow (Chicago).
