On Bob Dylan’s 1976 Desire album cover, we see him decked out in a fedora, fur-collared coat, and scarf tie, gazing off into the distance—but what is he looking at? This alluring image, taken by Ruth Bernal, serves as the curatorial inspiration to
Desire, a group show of more than 20
female artists. Check out compelling and provocative work like Yoko Ono’s Touch Me cut-up canvas, Vivienne Griffin’s
peephole op-art ink drawing, and Louise Bourgeois and Tracey Emin’s watercolor paintings, one of which features a red
penis and is titled A Million Ways to Cum. Want more? Don’t wait, this show closes soon.
Mondays-Fridays, 10 a.m. Starts: Aug. 19. Continues through Aug. 23, 2013
