Sex Workers of Aotearoa and the Depot Artspace, invite you to explore an exhibition that will challenge your beliefs and the stereotypes that surround New Zealand’s sex industry. See behind the curtain into an industry shrouded in stigma and taboos, as sex workers become the artists, using all manner of mediums and artforms to portray “a day in the life of” a sex worker. Having debuted in 2019 at Flux, Wellington Museum, SWoA is bringing the voices of sex workers to Auckland, as 20+ muses become the artists in exhibition that is not to be missed.

Curator & creative Jordan Quinn began this journey as she saw that sex workers needed to represent themselves:

“We need to tell our own stories…sure these stereotypes exist but they don’t represent everyone”

This exhibition features works from over 20 artists who work in the sex industry in New Zealand with the theme: ‘A day in the life of…’

They are also on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and their website.
