City Slang: Dirty Show opens February 8
The 14th Dirty Show will kick off on February 8, as ever at Bertâ€™s Warehouse in Detroit.
The exhibition will feature guest artist Gregory De La Haba, and work from, Olivia De Berardinis, Curator, Lenora Claire and Stage Door Johnnies and hundreds of Provocative Artists. There are usually all sorts of performance artists, musos and other oddities on hand to provide entertainment.
They say, â€śThe Dirty Show, one of the world’s largest and best attended Erotic Art events which has left an indelible cultural mark (hickey?) on the Valentine’s Day experience in Detroit for 14 years and counting, returns to Bertâ€™s Warehouse with some exciting new twists.
â€śStarting with the world renown artist, Gregory de La Haba, Curator and from Los Angeles, media sensation Lenora Claire and Pin-up artist icon, Olivia De Berardinis, are three of this yearâ€™s Dirty newcomers highlights.
â€śEquus Maximus After 3 years of begging and ingratiation, Jerry Vile has convinced NY artist, Gregory de la Haba to display his controversial sculptural installation, “Equus Maximus.” De La Habaâ€™s unforgetable installation caused a stir at the 2008 Art Basel in Miami, will be the the centerpiece of the 14th version of The Dirty Show. Curator Vile has called the taxidermy and sculpture based piece, the best piece of erotica I have ever seen.â€ť
Tickets are $25, or $10 in the afternoons.
