Description

WEAM Miami is proud to announce the first cooperation with the Kinsey Institute.

We invite you to start the Basel week in our Museum.

Protected Beauty examines masculine beauty through the lens of artists represented in the Kinsey Institute’s art collection. Many of the works in this exhibition came to the Kinsey Institute at a time when there were little to no other repositories that would accept artwork that presented the male nude outside of socially-accepted contexts. Naomi Wilzig established her Miami Museum with a similar intention, she explained that she wanted to evoke the sensual experience of the pleasure and pain of love, and also wanted to send a message of tolerance in acknowledgment of the community and diversity of mankind. The traveling exhibition “Protected Beauty” is a logical collaboration between two American institutions whose focus is on understanding human sexuality . The result is breathtaking, beautiful and full of social and political relevance. “Protected Beauty” was curated by Rebecca Fasman, Manager of Traveling Exhibitions at the Kinsey Institute, and Helmut Schuster, Director of Weam Miami.
