In this lecture, David Dunlop explores sex as motivation, motif and the unconscious and overt determinant of the appearance and process of art. How are sexual mores, tastes, and roles determined by art? How is our sexual biology a determinant in the substance and appearance of art? This exploration reaches back to our first historical representation on stone to artists’ work today.
