Blood Money is an intimately interactive art show curated and produced by Caroline Caldwell, Mistress Niko, and Sybil Fury. The opening events on August 10th and 11th will feature artworks mounted on male submissives, and interactive experiences only to be explored in person. By inviting actual clients and sex workers to share this space, the stakes are real, the money is real, and once you enter, you’ll find yourself implicated in unexpected ways.
Blood Money rejects the fallacy that all sex work is either inherently exploitative or inherently empowering. It plunges viewers into the intersection of money, sex, and power. Blood is a metaphor for the female body with all its vitality, horror, and holiness. Sex workers sell this feminine life force, and our psyche and bodies bear the cost. Money is the medium through which we uphold capitalist and patriarchal systems of power, while subverting our status as women, laborers, and objects of desire.

Important to Know:
– This show will feature partial to full nudity and sexually explicit interactions.
– As this is a show by and for sex workers, phones and cameras will be banned in the space. Since you won’t be able to live vicariously through your friends’ IG stories, we strongly suggest you check this show out in person.
– Please bring cash to show you appreciation for our lovely performers.
