Susan Inglett‘s summer exhibition Screw You curated by David Platzker uses the publication Screw: The Sex Review as a starting point for piecing together the late 1960s and early 1970s counterculture trends. The magazine involved prominent artists at the time including Dan Graham and Andy Warhol to avoid censorship and promote sexual freedom alongside fine art. Displayed alongside magazines, manifestos and books, artworks in the show by artists like John Chamberlin, Yayoi Kusama and Betty Tompkins provide a context to understand the concerns and intelligent rebellion of the artistic community.
