Kelly Dennis is Assistant Professor of Modern and Contemporary Art History at the University of Connecticut, Storrs.
"This is a daring and provocative study of the historical conception of "pornography" and, in particular, of its relation to questions which have helped define art since its beginnings: the antagonism between painting and sculpture, the representation of female sexuality, the deeper implications of sexuality and subjectivity for art and its history, and the struggle between art and photography. Reading Art/Porn clarifies why we often are so moved and impassioned by art. After it, we may never again view art or pornography in the same way." Eduardo Cadava, Princeton University
