Lucas Lucas presents
Blood MoneyAn Intimately Interactive Art Show Brought Together by Sex Workers and Allies
July 23th 2018, Brooklyn, NY: Lucas Lucas is excited to announce Blood Money, an intimately interactive art show brought together by sex workers and their allies on view August 10th – 19th.
Curated and produced by Caroline Caldwell, Mistress Niko, and Sybil Fury, the opening event on August 10th and 11th will feature artworks mounted on male submissives, and interactive experiences only to be explored in person. By inviting actual clients and sex workers to share this space, the stakes are real, the money is real, and once you enter, you’ll find yourself implicated in unexpected ways.
Blood Money rejects the fallacy that all sex work is either inherently exploitative or inherently empowering. It plunges viewers into the intersection of money, sex, and power. Blood is a metaphor for the female body with all its vitality, horror, and holiness. Sex workers sell this feminine life force, and our psyche and bodies bear the cost. Money is the medium through which we uphold capitalist and patriarchal systems of power, while subverting our status as women, laborers, and objects of desire.
The show will be hosted by Lucas Lucas, a female-run art gallery in Williamsburg. Lucas Lucas will host local harness designer Love Lorn Lingerie, apparel brand Independent THOT, and sex worker-run mutual care collective Lysistrata, to create a safe space that is performative, healing, and stylish for Dommes and their subs, as well as those protecting the rights of sex workers.
We will also be hosting a group panel about the politics of sex worker self-representation in the age of FOSTA/SESTA on Saturday, August 11th from 5:30pm-6:30pm. More details to follow.
