Mark + Lianna in front of their “Drawer” at the Museum of Vancouver’s new exhibit, Sex Talk in The City.
Thanks to @maurice for the photo!
Mark + Lianna’s experiences with their open relationship are explored in the exhibit’s Wall of Drawers, where visitors cannot help but feel like a kid snooping in their parents’ room as they make their way along the wall, wondering what kind of secrets await as they furtively peak within.
Three quotes from Mark’s play, “Bi, Hung, Fit and Married” are part of the Quote Wall, which greets visitors as they enter the exhibit space, setting the tone for the content within:
“No matter how well you know someone, you never really know what they do for sex.”
“The first layer of intimacy is to be intimate with oneself.”
“And then one day it hit me: I’m living in a monogamous, heterosexual relationship, when in fact, I’m neither.”
From the MOV website:
Sex Talk in the City is a multifaceted exhibition that teases out how people in Vancouver learn about sexuality, define pleasure, and respond to particular politics. Sex isn’t only biological, it’s cultural. Sex Talk in the City addresses issues of sexual expression, diversity, politics, and education in a fun, approachable, and thought-provoking manner.
Sex Talk in the City runs from Thursday, February 14, 2013 to Monday, September 2, 2013.
