A gallery with white walls, fine paintings, and people in suits are presumably what comes to mind when you think of the art industry as a whole. The stereotypes of perusing high-end art, however, are slowly deteriorating especially with collectives, gallerists, and artists themselves raising the level of how their pieces should be observed, analyzed and experienced. Yes, technological inventions such as virtual reality and 3D modeling software are cutting-edge tools that many artists are taking advantage of today. However, it’s refreshing to see all of the ingenious methods creative folks are undertaking to make masterful experiences without the use of modern technology.

From Michelangelo to Anish Kapoor, here’s a list of must-see exhibits, installations as well NSFW artwork that will push the limits of your perception.

The Museum of Sex in New York City is currently hosting a new exhibition entitled “NSFW: Female Gaze.” The showcase, which is co-curated by Creators of Vice Media, has displayed pieces from over 20 female artists that reflect on lust, sexuality, and the female gaze as a whole. “There has long been a conventional approach to exploring sexuality,” Lissa Rivera, an artist, and co-curator of the exhibit told the Cut. “And we really wanted to show a wide variety of reflections on self-discovery and different types of sexual expression, ones that are maybe unusual or not thought as often.”
