"...the exhibition title can be read as much as a question as a statement of how we make and engage in art. What are the kinds of pleasures that the artists, or we as viewers, might be guilty of? Notably, what is most significant and, these days, political about the answer to this question is that these “guilty pleasures” are as much sensual and romantic as intellectual and philosophical." Read Donna Roberts' exhibition review on Guilty Pleasure in Finland Today and come see the exhibition if you haven't already. There's only three days left.
