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.
Most mediums, including painting, photography, digital art, sculpture, drawing/graphic art, mixed media/construction and original prints are eligible for entry.
The 2012 selected charity is the sexual health charity FPA. FPA gives straightforward information, advice and support on sexual health and on sex and relationships to everyone in the UK. FPA’s mission is to help establish a society in which everyone has positive, informed and non-judgemental attitudes to sex and relationships, and where everyone can make informed choices about sex, relationships and reproduction so they can enjoy sexual health free from prejudice or harm.
