ArtNews listed “Rough Trade: Art and Sex Work in the Late 20th Century” among their weekly selection of “9 Art Events to Attend in NYC This Week”:

Following on the heels of “Putting Out,” a show at Gavin Brown’s Enterprise that focuses on new art related to sex work, this exhibition will survey pieces about that industry from the 1970s, ’80s, and ’90s. Included are various works that meditate on sexual discrimination, which occurs both before and behind the camera in many works here. Curated by Greg Ellis and Brian Paul Clamp, the show is intended as a companion piece to the Whitney Museum’s David Wojnarowicz retrospective, and will include work by Kenny Burgess, Larry Clark, Philip-Lorca diCorcia, Fred Halsted, Mark Morrisroe, Tomata du Plenty, John Sex, and Samuel Steward, among others.
