In Luis Buñuel's 1977 film “That Obscure Object of Desire,” the hero lusts after a tantalizing and elusive woman.

Each of the artists represented in That Obscure Object of Desire is continuously drawn to forms, processes, and materials with bodily connotations that oscillate between the sexual and the abject, reworked in countless variations.
