It is a platform for erotic art in various forms. According to DirtyDetroit.com, its mission is to promote, publish and propagate erotic art in all forms… Held every Valentine’s Weekend, the show features a large number of artists, from first-timers to the famous at their dirtiest.
Many images may appear to some as pornographic, yet it is the beauty of the body and our sexuality that is exhibited not the specific sexual acts portrayed in action.
The art displayed ranged from erotic photography as shown here as well as playful ‘machines’, live performances, metal art, sculpture and more.
The other stage showed the Japanese erotic art of rope bondage called: SHIBARI also known as KINBAKU. It serves not only as binding but as body art, emphasizing our features with beautifully tied knots and hanging devices.
Walking around the show, one can see the average Joe as well as others dressed in provocative and playful ways.
Outside of the surprise and obvious subculture seen in this venue. What jumped out to me was Freedom.
Some may say ‘freaks’ or ‘wrong’ but I say normal.
If you want to get your ‘freak’ on, the Detroit Dirty show is a great way to exhibit or watch an open venue of erotic and safe expression.
I apologize for the lack of citation for the photos posted, as I took pictures of the art without writing down the artist. I encourage you to attend to experience the Dirty Show first hand.
