Kink Out is a bi-coastal collective that unites people of diverse identities with lived experience in BDSM culture through art, activism, community organizing, and conversation. With KINK OUT: EPHEMERA, a month-long residency, the collective transforms MOCA’s WAREHOUSE into an active archive for those who live and love differently. Drawing on physical and oral histories the residency brings together The Carter /Johnson Library and Collection, a compilation of printed material which celebrates sexuality from the 1700’s to the present day, and a regular schedule of performances, panels, workshops, and community events, to explore the intersection between contemporary art, activism, and leather, kink, BDSM, and sex worker communities.
Throughout the residency Tuesdays are reserved for local community groups and activists to gather and learn from one another. Affinity Tuesdays feature organizations offering free NARCAN and CPR training, and local party promoters and organizers including sharing strategies on how to keep parties and concerts safe and welcoming.
Featured organizations include End Overdose, Sidewalk Project, Ostbanhof, Signal, Lights Down Low, Pegasus, Irene, Jeniluv, and Shelly (LANA).
KINK OUT: EPHEMERA is co-organized with kd diamond and Daphne aka EthicalDrvgs in collaboration with The Carter/Johnson Library and Collection.
KINK OUT: EPHEMERA contains sexually explicit content. Parents should use discretion.
