Salon reviews "Curve," a new survey of female nudes in contemporary art featuring work by a diverse group of artists (including two of our current favorites, Makoto Aida and Katy Grannan) and curated by a group of mostly female art critics. Glen Helfand calls it "useful, if not exactly titillating," but anyone who welcomes any opportunity to use art history as a pretext for looking at naked women might beg to differ.
