The Museum of Sex Director of Exhibitions Mark Snyder and curator Frank Maresca organized the exhibition Known/Unknown: Private Obsessions and Hidden Desire in Outsider Art showcasing over 100 works made by "outsider artists" that examine these artists' sexualities and hidden desires.
The social critic and academic blames 1960s disruptions of gender roles (and not the entertainment industry) for Madonna's and J. Lo's difficulty letting go of their youth as she chastises them to "stop cannibalizing the young."
Art becomes more prescient during times of existential uncertainty. It gives us something to talk about. It can allow us to both escape and engage with the world. Here are some of the winter 2017 museum exhibitions that will provide welcome respite from the political upheaval.
