About the Exhibit
“Nothing is beautiful, only man: on this piece of naiveté rests all aesthetics, it
is the first truth of aesthetics.”
— Friedrich Nietzsche
“Passion is the quickest to develop, and the quickest to fade. Intimacy develops more
slowly, and commitment more gradually still.”
— Robert Sternberg
In The Aesthetic of Intimacy, Geoffrey Aldridge, Ben Gest, Sarah Harrington, Jen P. Harris, Jason Horowitz, Ginny Huo, A.B. Minor, and Nicholas and Sheila Pye explore the beauty of relationships in all their multifaceted splendor. The diverse works by the eight artists in this exhibition strive to portray more than just the expression of libidinous sexual desires. Instead, they highlight all aspects of intimacy, including the social, physical, affectional, sexual, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual.
