The Voyeur
The Voyeur is a selection of nudes and erotic art from Museum of Latin American Art’s collection showing through May 26.
The collection includes emblematic works by José Luis Cuevas, Julio Galán, Nelson Garrido and Francisco Toledo, among others.
The title The Voyeur references one of the works in the exhibition by Jorge Alzaga, while also alluding to the French term meaning “one who looks,” and the studies by feminist film theorist Laura Mulvey on the representations of women—not restricted to cinema but other art forms—sexual fantasies and objectification from a male point of view.
This selection addresses diverse themes, such as homoerotic desire in the case of Julio Galán; erotic literature in the series about the Marquis of Sade by José Luis Cuevas; anthropomorphic representations of sexual acts by Francisco Toledo; ironic and sexualized religious iconography by Nelson Garrido. Other works by artists Leónidas Correa and Lucía Pizzani place the viewer as the perverse observer of intriguing scenes.
