SEXINESS: Rituals, Revisions, and Reconstructions

Sexiness: Rituals, Revisions, and Reconstructions features contributions from a diverse group of fifty artists, educators, sex workers, creatives, and activists exploring the political potential of sexiness. The work presented here references and complicates long-standing cultural associations with sexiness, including power, bodies, gender, and desire. At the same time, it introduces new and thought-provoking connections to sexiness, such as listening, healing, water, and being alone. Sexiness reads like a series of intimate conversations with bold, brave, and innovative individuals. Using multiple forms of print-based media, such as text and images, writing and handwriting, and poetry and portraits, Sexiness transforms sexiness from a monolithic and oppressive force into a potent site of possibility.
