Composed presents a selection of photo-based works by seven contemporary artists in the final gallery of the museum’s permanent exhibition.

ADI NES (Israeli, 1966- ), Untitled (From “Soldiers”), 1966, Chromogenic color print, 35 1/4” x 35 7/16”

Using conventional forms of photography—including traditional portraiture, photojournalism, and online profile pictures—the artists focus on the highly mediated politics of sex and desire.

ART at FAIRS – Spring & Fall

Plans are now being made for Tom of Finland Foundation’s 2012 Art Fair Weekend, which will be held September 27th through the 30th. We will have a larger and more “current” venue that will be more attractive to Artists and Collectors alike and we return to the successes of previous autumns. We want to provide a more fitting exhibition space and room, both for our formal discussions, and relaxed conversation.

An important part of this 2012 Weekend will be the presence of the winners of our biennial artist contest, the celebration of the 20th anniversary edition of Tom’s biography and the completion of our new art storage facility at TOM House.

The Foundation is steadfast in its commitment to protect and preserve artwork and to promote the exceptional artists that create it.
