WEST HOLLYWOOD

Bob Mizer & Tom of Finland is the first American museum exhibition devoted to the work of Bob Mizer (1922–1992) and Touko Laaksonen, aka “Tom of Finland” (1920–1991), two of the most recognizable figures of 20th century erotic art and forefathers of an emergent post-war gay culture. Organized by MOCA Curator Bennett Simpson and Guest Co-Curator Richard Hawkins, in collaboration with the artists’ respective Foundations, the exhibition will feature a selection of Laaksonen’s masterful drawings and collages, alongside Mizer’s photographs, photo-collages, and films, as well as his groundbreaking magazine Physique Pictorial—where drawings by “Tom” were first published in 1957.
