For the 2nd year running, Erotic Art London will exhibit hundreds of quality erotic artwork, in every imaginable media from all over the world at Bargehouse, OXO Tower Wharf, from 24th-27th October 2019. The exhibition has been built from a curated Open Call from over 500 submissions worldwide. Over 150 artists have been selected to the show their work and one artist will be selected as the winner and receive £500.
In addition to the art, there will be workshops / art classes, performances, presentations, music, food and drink and an erotic art market.
This will be a great way for the public to get to know what is happening in the world of erotic art, an art genre that has been followed with taboo for centuries and still is. We hope with hosting an event like this annually, we can help break down some of this taboo and opinions people have on this type of art work.
For 2019, we have specially invited guests including Stefan Dickers from the Bishopsgate Institute presenting leather and fetish archives, Ryan Martin Young from Nottingham Bodycasting offering a demo on bodycasting, Artmakessense is coming all the way from Holland to give their presentation on Instagram for (erotic) artists and John Button from Honest Erotica will present erotic illustrations through history. Stefan Prince will present Stories of O, art and artists inspired by O and Yak El-Droubie from Korero will hold a presentation on their erotic book publications.
We will hold x3 life drawing classes. X2 will be held by Simon Whittle who runs London’s largest life drawing classes. These are free to anyone entering the exhibition. The Neon Life Drawing class is a unique class using UV lights and paint. This class is an extra £15 to anyone visiting the exhibition.
Other workshops including glamour photography, bodycasting, kink / bondage for beginners (by Bondatrix).
EAL 2019 will also host guided art tours throughout the exhibition, taken by Jennifer Jigour, who regularly takes tours at the Seattle Erotic Art Festival. Jennifer will dress in costume and talk about the art exhibits and the artists.
In the evenings we will have performances from:
The international circus showgirl Charlie Bouquett will be with us each night, performing her dark and dangerous acts, together with Mouse (famous from The Box, Soho), Andromeda Circus, Marshall Arkely, Marnie Scarlett, Frankie Andrews and Vicky Butterfly.
