'Slamsection' Curated by Leo Fitzpatrick @ Steinsland Berliner

Stockholm’s Gallery Steinsland Berliner presents their latest show curated by Leo Fitzpatrick. Entitled SLAMSECTION, the exhibition brings together some of the artist, curator and actor’s favorite East Coast artists including Dave Sandey of Fuck This Life, the late great Dash Snow, Mark Gonzales and Richard Kern. One of Norway’s most aspiring artists is featured too in the form of Gardar Eine Einarsson, alongside the colorful Eddie Martinez and iconic skateboard photographer, Tobin Yelland. So is the outsider musician Daniel Johnston. SLAMSECTION will be on view until May 16, 2015 at Gallery Steinsland Berliner in Stockholm.

Danaë and the Shower of Gold, Adolf Ulrik Wertmüller, 1786

The exhibition Lust & Vice shows examples of how sexuality, virtue and sin have been depicted in art since the 16th century – from an age when the Church preached that sexual contact was only permitted within wedlock to today’s questioning of who erotic art is created for. A total of 200 works are on show from the museum’s own collections, a mix of paintings, drawings, sculptures and applied art. You can also see a genuine chastity belt! Now on view at the National Gallery in Stockholm 24 March 2011–14 August 2011. www.nationalmuseum.se
