Impure Art, which was launched in May for an initial six week period, has been so successful that it has now been established as the UK’s only permanent commercial erotic art gallery, and its new exhibition was set to open on July 5th and run until the end of August.
Impure Art showcases work from over 40 local, national and international erotic artists in the heart of Brighton’s Lanes, and is a collaboration between Brighton boutique She Said and internationally celebrated erotic artist Jamie McCartney. It deals in art broadly described as ‘anything from nude to rude’, from feminine paintings, through humorous illustrations, sculptures and saucy neon lights to fetish photography and fine erotic jewellery.
The opening exhibition last month attracted a flurry of media attention with Channels 4 and 5 filming at the gallery, and sales were reported to be brisk. Exhibitions will be loosely themed, with the upcoming exhibition focusing on more gay and lesbian artists as it coincides with the Pride celebrations.
Impure Art can be found at 13 Ship Street Gardens, Brighton, BN1 1AJ.
