homo erotic exhibition at the warsaw national museum of art

The Homo Eroticus exhibition at the Warsaw National Museum of Art (Muzeum Narodowe) is surprisingly good and lacking a vulgar shock factor. Rather the shock (or surprise) is that such an exhibition is being held at the National Museum of Art which, of recent, has been categorized as having classic works of art and being relatively boring and having a lack of anything fresh. The exhibition manages to chronicle homosexuality from many centuries back by showing paintings and graphic prints (i.e. featuring homosexuality in Greek Mythology) to modern photography, videos and paintings. There is also some criticism of the 'hidden' homosexuality in the Catholic church.
