The Homoerotic Works of Charles Griffin Farr
Curated by Ava Kristy
February 19—February 29, 2020
Opening Reception February 19, 5pm-7pm

Exhibiting the Homoerotic work of Charles Griffin Farr will address sexuality and forms of the male gaze. Born in 1908, Farr began his career in New York before settling in San Francisco. Several of his works were gifted to the University Collection. Although his work features a variety of subjects, his figure drawings and ink drawings reflect the artists sexuality. The interaction between model and artist presents a unique view of relationships between men as both sexual and loving.
