Notes on "Scoping Boys" and "Scoping Girls": Scoping Girls and Scoping Boys

by Robert Lee and Lee Rodney

Fuse, 1997, v. 20, no. 4, pp. 41,42,43

Review of two shows and panels held at Gallery TPW exploring the eroticized lesbian body, (Scoping Girls) and the eroticized gay body (Scoping Boys.) Rodney and Lee look to find a link connecting the "girl's" panel with the "boy's" panel but find that the politics of looking remain separate between the sexes, Scoping Girls looking closely at female and feminist relationships to pornography and Scoping Boys questioning how to represent an erotic gay male body in the face of AIDS.
