Doing Your Dirty Work


Doing Your Dirty Work: a sampler of contemporary art about sex
Open to Artists in the United States


 “Doing Your Dirty Work” is the second annual group exhibition at the Center for Sex and Culture in San Francisco, California. We invite all artists that are at least 18 years old to submit recent artwork that deals with themes of sexuality, sexual identity and gender identity.  Please do not censor yourself. Nothing is too dirty! Nothing is too perverse!


The Center for Sex and Culture Gallery aims to provide space for artwork of significant merit that addresses sexuality and sexual identity, especially outsider or minority sexual identity. Too often mainstream art spaces self-censor or are afraid of sexual content. Too often the standard of artistic merit in sexuality community spaces is disappointingly low. Erotic art exhibitions are too often heavily hetero, cis, or white centric. CSC Gallery makes bridging these divides and providing a solution to these shortcomings its mission.


Jurors: Dorian Katz, CSC Curator and Marlene Hoeber, CSC Director of Collections

Submissions are due at midnight Friday, May 15th, 2013. The show will be from Friday July 5th through Friday, August 30th.
