I have co-curated a group art show with Rick Castro, owner of Antebellum Gallery in Hollywood, California!
“Cinch Me,” a corset-themed art show in all mediums, will open May 18.
Antebellum, the only fetish gallery in America, is an eclectic treasure and one of my favorite places. My first visit to Antebellum was for a silent art auction for an artist friend. Rick and I became acquainted discussing New Orleans artist George Dureau and his important influence on Robert Mapplethorpe’s work and of course, Jack Fritscher’s Mapplethorpe biography, “Assault With a Deadly Camera.” As I saw the worn copies of “Drummer” in Rick’s extensive book collection, I got a a bit of idea of what Antebellum is all about and have only scratched the surface.
I am very excited and humbled to have been given this opportunity.
Now… ON WITH THE SHOW!

Yes, people still wear corsets in this new millennia. Yes, men wear them. As a vessel, the corset holds our deep fantasies and desires. As boned armor, it fortifies and liberates.
