From video performances parodying the power relations of striptease to delicately twisted drawings of erotica, the works in Dark Glasses reflect on ideas of love, relationships and sexuality. For some of the artists these thematic strands are at the core of their subject matter; for others they are more latent or embedded within a broader range of concerns. The exhibition asks how these subjects might be figured into current art practices, raising questions about sincerity, sentimentality, and a tendency to relegate 'love' to the anecdotal.
