DIRTY LAUNDRY UP LATE

FANCIFUL FRIDAY: MILLS & BOOM!

Enter the warm embrace of The Good Room at Metro Arts for a Friday that will set your sheets on fire. 

Arrive early to take a wander around the Dirty Laundry exhibition, then stay for the ticketed Up Late session.

Bringing their bosom-heaving brand of smouldering romance stories to Metro Arts for ONE NIGHT ONLY, special guests The Fanciful Fiction Auxiliary will host a sensual story time session that is sure to make you blush.

Get comfy on your own reserved recliner and enjoy erotic – albeit sometimes nonsensical and often hilarious – tales of lust and romance tumescently told beneath our “Dirty Laundry”.

Come with a friend. 
Come with a stranger. 
Come alone (afterall you know what you like).

Just come.

ABOUT DIRTY LAUNDRY

Dirty Laundry is a large-scale cotton-based installation of anonymous sexual confessions, fantasies and desires hoisted and hung for public witness. Inspired by enforced social distancing (on the streets and in the sheets), this cheeky work is a record of the way 2020 has altered our romantic relationships and changed the way we quench desire in a positive celebration of sex, intimacy and holding out for love in lockdown.

Submission Number 45:

“I want a woman to quote Ginsbergs ‘Footnote to Howl’ to me while she makes me cum.”
