Sexy Animals, So Like Us

New York’s Metropolitan Museum, Museum of Modern Art, and Whitney Museum are the big shots on campus. But if we followed our baser urges, lines outside the Museum of Sex would be ’round the block. Their current exhibit is devoted to animals doing the deed, both for baby-making purposes and not so much. “The Sex Lives of Animals” was conceived of by Norwegian designers Jennifer Kinon and Michael Beirut, who were inspired by a field guide found at a stoop sale in Brooklyn. The grid-like display takes its cue from Linnaeus and his Table of the Animal Kingdom, and from Darwin and his Tree of Life. It doesn’t sound hot, I know, but sculptures like “Deer Threesome” and “Gay Dolphin Blow-Hole Sex” will educate as well as titillate.
