SEXIER is a no-holds-barred, edgier take of all things sexual cum (pun intended) pornographic of body, mind and soul ranging from photography to performance to installation to painting to sculpture past the usual objects of desire.

Jones, Gabriel Bizen Akagawa, Helen McElroy, Joshua Slater, Jason Jozwiak, Joseph Mault, Judith Brotman, Chris Naka, Laura Hsieh, Jiankun Xie, and Erin LaRocque to go beyond tantalizing the imagination, beguling the senses and teasing to hint at something suggestive or provocative.
