    The exhibition delves into mature themes related to sexuality and identity. While we aim for inclusivity and understanding, sensitive viewers are advised to exercise discretion.
  • How can I learn more about the topics discussed in the exhibition?
    We recommend starting with literature on BDSM/Kink, Black Sexual Liberation, and the history of photography as an art form. Additionally, there will be resources and reading lists available at the exhibition venue.
  • What is the purpose of the "I, Too, Am Kink" exhibition?
    The exhibition aims to shed light on the experiences of People of Color within the BDSM/Kink Community. It seeks to highlight their contributions, narratives, and perspectives, promoting understanding and dialogue about the intersection of race and kink.
  • Why focus on People of Color in the BDSM/Kink community?
    Historically, the stories and experiences of People of Color in various communities, including the BDSM/Kink world, have been marginalized or overlooked. This exhibition provides a platform for these voices, challenging erasure and broadening the understanding of diverse experiences within the kink scene.
  • How does this exhibition tie into Black Sexual Liberation?
    Black Sexual Liberation is about embracing and celebrating the sexual identities and expressions of Black individuals, free from societal judgements or oppressions. "I, Too, Am Kink" showcases the freedom and empowerment of People of Color in the BDSM/Kink community, challenging societal norms and promoting a broader understanding of sexual liberation.
  • I'm not familiar with BDSM/Kink. What is it?
    BDSM stands for Bondage, Discipline, Dominance, Submission, Sadism, and Masochism. It's a broad umbrella term for various kinds of erotic practices or role-playing. Kink, on the other hand, refers to unconventional sexual practices, concepts, or fantasies. Both are about consensual exploration and expression of one's sexuality.
  • How can I support the work of Jeremy A. Teel and other artists in this field?
    Engaging with the art, attending exhibitions, and participating in discussions are great ways to support. Additionally, consider purchasing prints, sharing the exhibition on social media, or directly reaching out to artists for collaboration or support.
  • I'm intrigued by the art and want to be a part of it. How can I get involved?
    We're thrilled to hear that! If you're interested in being a part of this artistic journey, please reach out to us via email or through our website. We're always looking to collaborate and expand on the narratives being told.
  • Some of the themes might be challenging for me. How should I approach the exhibition?
    It's natural for art to provoke strong reactions, especially when exploring themes that may be unfamiliar or challenging. We encourage visitors to approach the exhibition with an open mind, engage with the narratives presented, and reflect on their feelings. Remember, art is a medium for dialogue, understanding, and personal growth.
  • Is photography a valid medium for exploring such themes?
    Absolutely. Photography has the power to capture moments, tell stories, and evoke emotions. Through the lens, we can shed light on underrepresented narratives, challenge societal norms, and engage in important dialogues. The visual medium allows viewers to connect with the subjects on a personal level, making it a potent tool for fostering understanding and empathy.
