Erotic art has a long and distinguished, if controversial, tradition in the history of modern art. Arguably, eroticism in art brings us closer to our humanity, yet there are few genres in the arts that have been as under-represented and unjustly maligned as expressions of what we, in all our rich diversity, find erotic.
Art Erotica is a new event in the London art calendar that will present a long- overdue, high-profile opportunity to exhibit for artists producing work in the erotic genre. Brought to you by the organizers of the Cork Street Open Exhibition – a respected international event, founded four years ago – Art Erotica will benefit a selected charity and will be juried, with submitted work carefully and rigorously chosen for exhibition by a panel drawn from leading figures in the UK art world.
The diverse Exhibition will span most mediums, including painting, photography, digital art, sculpture, drawing, mixed media construction and original prints by emerging and established artists from around the world. Photographs by American photographer James Armstrong, and drawings by internationally acclaimed artist Jamil Nasqh, will be shown for the first time.
In addition to spectacular visual art we are happy to present talks and public readings by a stellar line-up of art historians, critics, philosophers and actors, all focused on the erotic theme.
We invite you to join us in January to explore, discover and discuss Art Erotica. The full events programme can be downloaded HERE
