GALLERY | Located within Downtown LA’s infamous Historic Core, Dab Art Co. & Gallery is in the heart of the LA Arts District. All year round a Downtown Los Angeles Art Walk is a monthly event that positively impacts the local community, artists, galleries and businesses by injecting an additional 200,000 patrons each year into the local economy.

ABOUT | In 2011 Yessíca Torres co-opened H Gallery + Studios in Ventura, California. As co-owner and chief curator of H Gallery, Yessíca’s contemporary and modern program was a clear break from the conventional art scene that surrounded her. Keeping focused on emerging and mid-career artists, H Gallery’s progressive gallery design and ambitious exhibition schedule were received with immediate regional success. Yessíca still owns H Gallery, which is now one of the most prevailing contemporary art spaces in the greater Los Angeles area.

With the revelation that art exposure should not be limited by physical location, Yessíca independently established Dab Art in 2014. This distinctive art company is dedicated to enhancing the contemporary art experience for artists, collectors and viewers in and outside the gallery setting. Dab Art embraces the relentless evolution of contemporary art by featuring experimental artists, highlighting innovative techniques and utilizing technological advances. Mainly focusing on mid-career to established artists, Dab Art’s current inventory of international artwork is available for purchase online. Our partnership with Arsty has greatly expanded our collector visibility, elevating the Dab Art sales experience.

Dab Art Co. headquarters and main Gallery are located in the historic District of Downtown Los Angeles. Since it’s initial launch, Dab Art has expanded from standard gallery exhibitions to art publications, artist talks, panel discussions, video profiles, exhibition videos and now, documentary filmmaking; featuring our most remarkable and distinguished artists.

Lusted Men, open collection of erotic pictures of men*

Share

Eligibility:

Where are men*’s bodies in erotic photography?

The bulbous geometry of that bulge between the legs. The detail of a pulsing forearm vein. A drop of sweat dripping down a neck. This is what we want to see and show: the intimacy of male bodies in all shapes, sizes and anatomies.

As such, we’re seeking erotic photos of LUSTED MEN.

We invite you all to join us in creating a king-sized collection of meaty, masculine erotic pictures. Selfies, analog film shots, digital photos, photomontages, screenshots: all your images—whether they be pieces of artwork, or simple snapshots from your phone—can help furnish this gallery of the up-close-and-personal. The collection will be exhibited at Recyclart in Brussels, in 2020.

Photographs of men as objects of desire are rare. Erotica is a sphere largely left consigned to woman*: to be showcased, to be peeped at, to be ogled, to give one’s self over to others’ pleasure.

Men are taught to conquer others, not to lay themselves bare before a lens, an audience; and they are not brought to explore their own body and sensuality. To do so is a cultural taboo, one so closely adhered to that we don’t even notice the near absence of men in erotic photography. So let’s show them to be the objects of desire that they are.

Many gay artists have explored this field such as Pierre et Gilles, Mapplethorpe, and Jalis2019, to whom we’ll pay homage. But what of the gaze of women—those attracted to, allured, enchanted by men? As women, we want to explore this largely uncharted ground. Women are not the only raw materials of desire, despite being used as such in advertising, photography, and cinema. We are also behind the lens, producers of erotic images.

So, come photographers, models, amateurs, aficionados! Send us your stock of erotic male images. For men curious to feel desired, for women who want to share their regard: indulge and participate. Look through the sexy pictures on your phones, set up photo shoots! LUSTED MEN will be all the more succulent for it. With or without clothes, following the audacity of your desires.
