'Pop-Porn' is Neo-Pop Erotica for the Masses! Five artists celebrate all forms of intimacy; untethered, unabashed, and unbound. Pop-Porn will debut at MF Gallery in Brooklyn on Jan.12th 2019. Curated by Matt Myers, aka Eronin, Pop-Porn spotlights five artists working with modern concepts of eroticism and desire, and how it is essential to us right now. Exhibition curator Matt Myers has worked and shown his art at Sotheby’s NY auction house since 2001. He became keenly aware of a cross-connect between Pop-Art and Eroticism, and the idea of Pop-Porn emerged as a platform to showcase a group of artists sharing this vision. The artists selected to participate in the Pop-Porn exhibition are: Eronin, Fernando Carpaneda, Ellen Stagg, Martina Secondo Russo and Anna Park.

Just like Warhol, Wesselmann and Lichtenstein drew from everyday images from mass media and popular culture to create Pop-Art, Pop-Porn also draws from mass media, but from more provocative sources.

There is a ever-growing trend in major venues and even auction houses to promote erotica as valid and essential. For two years in a row, Sotheby’s London has celebrated erotica in their highly successful public auctions aptly titled: ‘Erotic: Passion & Desire’, and last year the first London Erotic Festival premiered with two of the artists featured in Pop-Porn; Eronin, and Fernando Carpaneda.

The artists will be in attendance at the opening on Saturday January 12th, from 7 to 10pm. Admission is free and open to audiences 18 and over. Refreshments will be served.

After opening night, the show will be open by appointment only, until February 17th, 2019.

MF Gallery is located at 213 Bond Street, between Baltic and Butler Streets in the Gowanus neighborhood of Brooklyn. Take the F or G to Bergen St., the A or C to Hoyt/ Schermerhorn, or the R to Union.
