New topic: Phallacies

A Guide to the Field presents Phallacies, a show that represents the nuance of sex, possibility and power. Featuring a diverse range of works, Phallacies outlines the relationship between art practice and sexual practice. Taking its cue from queer and trans critiques of the body, embodiment, desire and despair, Phallacies asks: how do changing instruments for and representations of sex pose both an opening and a site of longing?
