This is the second year Oscar Jimenez is organizing a naughty fundraiser for Pan Left Productions collective. Last year’s event attracted more than 100 people to the courtyard at the Citizen’s Studio, 520 N. 9th St (corner of 9th Ave & 6th St) and they expect double that number this year.
Artists will challenge taboos and oppressive cultural norms through video, live performance, spoken word, music and painting. Featured performers are Cirqu du Sin, Cabaret Boheme, Marc Pedraza and Parasol Project. Local celebrity Bunny Fu Fu will serve as Mistress of Ceremonies and will guide attendees through this sensual and visually stimulating festival.
For last years installation art piece, seven artists created a peep show. This year the collaboration has grown to at least 20 artists contributing to a giant group art project, “Confessional”, about sharing secrets and the elimination of sexual shame.
Free Sex celebrates sexual diversity, expression and non-conformity. Misogyny, homophobia, and sexual violence will be challenged by thoughtful and mindful art. All profits go to support progressive and radical media produced by Pan Left. The festival is intended for those that are ages 18 and up.
So mark you calendar for Saturday, September 12 from 7 to 11 p.m.; you wont want to miss this. $6 suggested donation at the door.
In addition to founding and coordinating this event, Oscar Jimenez is a fashion designer, organizer of the Wingspan sponsored Tucson Latin Gay Pride 2009 festival, and writer and director of the soon to be released short film, “Esmeralda Del Desierto”.
