The sex worker is no stranger to the art gallery. As sex workers, representations of our lives and bodies hang on the wall of major galleries around the world, and indeed in replica prints in living rooms and hallways across the nation. We see ourselves in films and television, novels and pop songs, often reduced to a character to pity or lust after, to add some edge or decoration.

This exhibition is about sex workers themselves as image makers, as object makers, sound artists, poets and performance artists; it is about the sex in sex work but is also about the unseen labour involved in being paid for ‘sex’. Through art the subtleties of the profession will be explored; boundaries, connections, pleasure and communication, stigma and stereotypes, bodies and the values we place on them.

This exhibition is an interrogation into the way sex workers are seen, and valued, within both a fine art and wider social context. Above all it is a refusal to occupy just one kind of representational lane.

Work includes photography, moving image, art installations, sculpture, paintings, poetry and mixed media. All are produced by sex workers working within Aotearoa.

Many pieces will be for sale, with a percentage of the proceeds going to The New Zealand Prostitutes Collective.
