The catalog includes a preface by the Institute's direrctor, a curatorial statement, 12 black and white plates, and a check list of all the pieces selected for the show. The works of art featured in the catalog represent a range of time periods, cultures, and media included in the exhibition and collections of the Kinsey Institute.

This exhibition of over fifty photographs, prints, and paintings from the Kinsey Institute's photography, art, and library holdings is designed to illustrate the representation of the kiss within the collections and to explore the definition and significance of representations of the kiss within diverse cultures. This selection of works from the United States, France, Japan, China, and Iran will be on display in the Indiana University School of Fine Arts Gallery from October 23 - November 24, 1998. These pieces, made by amateur, commercial, and professional artists, were created in a variety of situations and for a range of viewers. The images depict power kisses, chivalrous kisses, lusty kisses, and everything in between. See a sample of the exhibit's images on the Web page of the Indiana University School of Fine Arts (SOFA) Gallery under Past Exhibits.
