LAS VEGAS – Beginning June 1, 2017, the Erotic Heritage Museum will present Bare Men by Abigail Ekue
Photography as the “Artist of the Month”.
About the Exhibition:
This is the first exhibit of Bare Men outside of New York for Abigail Ekue, a photographer known for her direct and raw depiction of the human body including full-frontal male nudity. The exhibition at the Erotic Heritage Museum in Las Vegas is set to run from June 1 through July 31, 2017, making it the longest exhibit of the series to date, and will include erotic photography from the Bare Men series, including some previously unreleased images and photographs published in the Bare Men book. “I love the idea of Bare Men being in Las Vegas! Yes, Las Vegas has the ‘Sin City’ nickname and there will be erotic images presented, but it’s also about the freedom that comes with nudity. I think there’s a freedom to Las Vegas.”
Bare Men features art, editorial and erotic nude photographs of men sharing moments of joy, release, ecstasy and angst with full-frontal nudity. Abigail Ekue turns the female gaze on to the male body exposing the vulnerability, sensuality, and sexuality of men. “I’ve been questioned about the role reversal and power dynamics of my photo shoots. I don’t see it as a power trip but a creative collaboration that doesn’t shy away from the erotic.”
The Bare Men exhibit for the “Artist of the Month” exhibit at the Erotic Heritage Museum highlights the usually private moments of arousal and how men express their sexuality. “Solo sex for men is more than just ‘jerk and squirt’. It levels the playing field to witness that men aren’t above setting a scene or drawing out the experience. Then there’s the added layer of knowing they’re being photographed that either thrills or terrifies some of them.”
Abigail Ekue is available for commissioned nude and erotic photo shoots. Updates on her domestic and international travel schedule will be posted on her website, social media accounts and sent to her mailing list subscribers. She is currently unrepresented.
The Erotic Heritage Museum (3275 Sammy Davis Jr. Drive) is located in Las Vegas, Nevada.
