First Thursday Art Discussion
Creating Erotic Art - The Hows and the Whys
Thu, Mar 4 from 7pm - 8pm
The Pan Eros Foundation is pleased to create space for people to meet, talk, and share conversation and ideas. Each month, Pan Eros will host a discussion with a different topic to encourage the sharing of ideas and to create and expand communities. Pan Eros means “all love” and we support participants in cultivating and celebrating their sexuality. To support this mission, our monthly discussion topics will range among the educational and artistic realms.
Our goal in hosting these meetings is to grow a community that has rich conversations about sexuality. By fostering open discussions, we hope to end the stigma around sex and sexuality so that people may live more authentically and happily.
March's topic: Creating Erotic Art - The Hows and the Whys
Sophia Sky invites artists to join her in a conversation about how and why an artist creates erotic art. Sophia's definition of erotic art is expansive and includes any art that examines, celebrates, or depicts sexuality, gender, orientation, identity, bodies, intimacy, relationships, or parts going into parts. Artists of all mediums and styles are welcome to join the conversation. Special invitation is extended to artists who are not currently creating erotic art and are curious about exploring this genre.
Leading this discussion with Sophia is SEAF alumnus meyekərā. Photographer, filmmaker and visual artist meyekərā wants to normalize nudity, decriminalize sex work and promote an appreciation for every human body as a unique work of art. He champions body positivity and sexual liberation while depicting erotic pleasure and kink in ambitious and distinctly contemporary ways. His conceptual photography, which often features sex workers, serve as source material encoded with AI machine learning algorithms as part of his creative process and technique to imagineer 2D, 3D, augmented reality and virtual reality sexperiences.
All sexes, genders, races, ethnicities, sexual orientations, relationship orientations, and religions are welcome and celebrated. Kindness and a willingness to respect another point of view are expected.
