Dennis Barrie (b. 1947) is a museum director responsible for the curation of American pop-culture. He was the Director of the Cincinnati Contemporary Arts Center from 1983-1992. In 1990 Barrie and the gallery were indicted on pornography charges stemming from an exhibit of photographs by Robert Mapplethorpe entitled The Perfect Moment. At trial, a Cincinnati jury acquitted Barrie and the Center. The controversy was later chronicled in a TV movie titled "Dirty Pictures".
