Martin Hugo - my husband is dead, and i only want sex

November 3 - December 15, 2017



The Art Academy of Cincinnati presents my husband is dead & I only want sex, an exhibition of large collage works by Martin Hugo. The works were originally created on unstretched drop cloth on the floor of Martin Studio, where they were allowed to gather paint spills, and then built up with enlarged printed materials related to the nearby gas station, such as receipts and advertisements. The works were then stretched and first exhibited one year later at the newly opened No Place Gallery in Columbus, Ohio.
