The Lover Earth: Art and Ecosexuality Exhibit

Organized by Caroline Coxe ’20, Lover Earth: Art and Ecosexuality demonstrates the relationship between humans and the Earth. Taking Elizabeth Stephen’s and Annie Sprinkle’s term “ecosexuality,” Coxe demonstrates the erotic connection between people and nature through artwork. According to Coxe, the ecosex movement embraces environmental activism, art and sexual positivity, providing a new perspective on environmental justice. In addition, this movement encourages people to think critically about their relationship with their environment through art. This exhibit will utilize a variety of prints, paintings, photographs and moving images depicting connection we have with the Earth. This exhibit will virtually open from Saturday, May 30th to Sunday, August 2nd and can be accessed on the Tang museum’s exhibition page.

The Frances Young Tang Teaching Museum and Art Gallery

The Tang Museum, located at Skidmore College, encourages interdisciplinary learning and exploration for its students. Students obtain an effective educational experience by fusing art with course related subjects, such as history, physics and biology. From this, the Tang has one of the most rigorous faculty-engagement initiatives in the country. Additionally, the college’s robust publication and touring exhibition program provides its students with opportunities to further their skills and knowledge. While the building is temporarily closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Museum is still open online at http://tang.skidmore.edu.

Attending the Lover Earth Exhibit at the Frances Young Tang Museum and Art Gallery 

This event is virtual! All you have to do is visit the site. This exhibit was developed to awaken the minds of those curious about ecosexuality and see its beauty through art. The Tang collection was created as a learning tool for students and its patrons. As a result, through actively engaging with exhibits, artwork and ideas, the concepts of ecosex can serve to further advance society’s knowledge.
