A More Perfect Union? Power, Sex and Race in the Representation of Couples illuminates ways in which artists of different generations have explored the meaning of marriage, the nature of human relationships, sexuality, and public versus private expressions of love. Issues raised by the exhibition include the representation of the roles of women and men, social class, race, and same-sex marriage.
