Desire on the Edge features the work of a diverse group of artists: Heather Elizabeth Garland, Sandra Mack-Valencia, Tinuade Oyelowo, Aiden Simon, and Jade Yumang, whose work grapples with expressions of sexual desire. The exhibition proposes that desire, lust, and passion are seen as essential elements to sexual and romantic happiness. But when it comes to non-normative sexuality, how can we know what we desire when we live in a culture dominated by the heterosexual male viewpoint? If our desires are born under the influence of a repressive culture, is it still empowering to pursue them? And if not, what is the alternative and how do we live with the uncertainty?
