Coe offers us an altered piece of lurid gay porn ephemera. In Artsploitation old newspaper advertisements for gay porn theaters peddle their studly celuloid flicks and live shows. However, these movies star art-world heavy hitters. The film titles nudge and wink as they offer innuendo laden fantasy scenarios: Closeted Collector stars Arnold Lehman, while Mark Tansey’s Macho Man can be seen in a triple feature with Richter Rides Again and Super Hunk starring Charles Ray. Olafur Eliasson stars in Great Dane and Robert Longo in The Touch of His Brush. Don’t miss Mashed at the Met. Signed.
