Art Exhibit ‘Naked Spaces: Architecture in Art from the Kinsey Institute Collection’

01:30 pm to 05:00 pm
Indiana University, Kinsey Institute, Morrison Hall 3rd Floor
http://www.kinseyinstitute.org

Drawing on the Kinsey Institute’s permanent collections, Naked Spaces investigates the ways artists manipulate architectural representation to communicate ideas about sex, gender, and the erotic. Architectural form is used by artists working around the globe—and across time—as an invitation to view, but also as a plea for privacy; architectural space is used a framing device as well as screen. The diversity of artworks included in the exhibition creates an opportunity for viewers to consider the role played by the built environment in the construction of their own private and public identities.

The exhibition will include works by Toby Kaufmann, Andrey Avinoff, Michael Fingesten, Herbert Ascherman, Suzuki Harunobu, Clarence John Laughlin, Tom Bianchi, Clifford Raven Ingram, Max Kislinger, Rita Koehler, Emilio Sanchez, Edie Fake, Lehnert & Landrock, Arthur Tress, Félicien Rops, D. Keith Furon, Anne Roecklein, Ronald Searle, and Spencer Tunick.

Guest curator: S. N. Johnson-Roehr, Rutgers University.

Visiting hours are Monday thru Friday, 1:30 to 5 pm. Tours are available for 6 or more people. Call (812) 855-7686 for more information. Guides are provided when one is available.

Due to adult content, visitors should be 18 years of age or older, unless accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Harmontown Live Podcast Taping at The Comedy Attic

08:00 pm
The Comedy Attic (123 S. Walnut St.)
http://harmontown.eventbrite.com/

Creator, writer and producer of hit comedy series such as “Community” and “The Sarah Silverman Program”, Dan Harmon is one funny dude. Harmon, along with fellow funny man, Jeff Davis (Whose Line Is It Anyway?), can currently be heard on their comedy podcast “Harmontown”. The podcast fulfills Harmon’s dream to found a colony for like-minded misfits where he serves as mayor and has appointed the suit-clad Davis as his trusty comptroller (i.e. co-host). The show is part stand-up comedy and part traditional podcast, featuring anecdotes from Harmon’s storied life, classic tweets, rambling thoughts, musical interludes and so much more.
