Is the Art of Man Dead?

Hello Mr. Magazine - - CHALLENGE TRADITION - Text by E. Gib­bons

For thou­sands of years, the male fig­ure has been the cor­ner­stone of fine art, but in the last hun­dred years it has been shoved in the prover­bial closet as too po­tent, erotic, and gay. The male nude is even shunned by the gate­keep­ers of mu­se­ums; cu­ra­tors who them­selves are of­ten gay. It is per­plex­ing; it is as if they do not want to be guilty of ap­pear­ing to pro­mote some “gay agenda,” when what is re­ally needed is bal­ance.
