Pentagram Designs “The Sex Lives of Animals”


It’s true, everyone is having better sex than you. Even the animals. This is ably demonstrated in The Sex Lives of Animals currently on view at the Museum of Sex in New York. Designed by Michael Bierut and Jennifer Kinon, the exhibition explores the mating practices of species throughout the wild kingdom including those designed for reproductive purposes and those performed for sheer pleasure. Part entertainment, part natural history exhibition and part art gallery, the show features National Geographic-like photography and video clips as well as five specially commissioned life-sized animal sculptures by Brooklyn-based Norwegian artist Rune Olsen.
