Desire, curated by Jodie Vicenta Jacobson, is currently on view at the Yancey Richardson Gallery. The show is a group exhibition of women artists offering a selection of works examining desire vis-a-vis the mesmeric female gaze. Taking form in a variety of media, the selected works examine themes that range from sex and death, to awkwardness, seduction, psychology, and semantics (via Yancey Richardson Gallery).
