Celebrated architect/Renaissance man Carlo Mollino took over a thousand Polaroids of barely-clothed ladies between 1962 and 1973… for artistic inspiration purposes. Popular chap, no?

The exhibit explores “the boundaries and bridges between this artist’s male erotic imagination and his intellectual and artistic attitude,” blah-dee-da vintage n00ndz! “Carlo Mollino: Un Messaggio Dalla Camera Oscura,” Aug 31 – Sep 25, Kunsthalle Vienna Project Space, Vienna
