Private Art by Gay Artists Comes Out in ‘Protected Beauty’ at WEAM Miami

The Kinsey Institute, Indiana University and the World Erotic Art Museum (WEAM) Miami examine controversial ideas about masculine beauty and sexuality in art through an exhibition titled “Protected Beauty.” Launched on November 28, the exhibition will be on view at WEAM, Miami Beach, through March 1, 2017.

On display are photographs, prints, drawings and paintings created between 1890 and 1982 by well-known artists such as Robert Mapplethorpe, Paul Cadmus, Andrey Avinoff, Michael Miksche, George Platt Lynes, Wilhelm von Gloeden, Pavel Tchelitchew and Marcel Vertes — gay artists whose work had been collected by the Kinsey Institute. These works are being displayed in public for the first time through this exhibition that is curated by Rebecca Fasman, Kinsey Institute manager of traveling exhibitions, and WEAM Director Helmut Schuster.
