This year we start working at an incredibly exciting new venue: Bishopsgate Institute!
What better way to launch this exciting collab if not on a naughty Valentine’s night, where you will have a chance to draw our models – Manko and Tatiana – wearing Torture Garden Latex, and enjoy other kinky entertainment for a ticket of mere £5! But hurry – spaces are very limited.
NB: This is a 18+ event.
Looking for an alternative way to spend Valentine’s Day? Join the Bishopsgate Institute for a deep dive in to our archive’s Erotica and Pornography Collection…
Flirt with a stranger, impress a new beau, or spice up a relationship, over life drawing with Art Model Collective, talks from professional dominatrix Miss Kim Rub and treasures from the darkest depths of our archive.
The evening’s programme:
Art Model Collective (19:00 – 22:00)
Drop into a fetish and erotica-themed life drawing session run by Art Model Collective at any time across the evening. Models will be costumed (think rubber…) and poses will be accompanied by a soundtrack and intermittent erotic readings from the Institute’s Erotica and Pornography Collection.
Miss Kim Rub (20:00 and 21:00)
Enjoy two pop-up talks from professional dominatrix Miss Kim Rub, whose archive is part of the Bishopsgate Institute’s Collection. Miss Kim will be reflecting on her career as a dominatrix and 30+ years of experience in the fetish scene. She will also be talking about how to learn your craft and be a true professional dominatrix.
Archive Pop-Up (19:00 – 22:00)
We’ll be pulling out all the good stuff from the darkest depths of our archives, so take the opportunity to explore them at any time across the evening!
In a beautiful historic building in Spitalfields / Liverpool Street Station, this institution was ‘erected for the benefit of the public’ in 1894 with the motto ‘I grow old but I do not grow lazy’, and to this day they continue to be home for ideas and debate, learning and enquiry, with the mission to inspire independent thought, connecting past and present.
