The Sex Workers’ Pop-Up is an exhibition in New York City that features artwork and performances about sex work from around the world. The exhibit is free to the public and will be open from March 10th through March 16th at 9 West 8th Street, New York, New York, 10011.
Sex work is often misunderstood, misrepresented, stigmatized, and still criminalized in most countries. Labeling sex workers as villains or victims won’t improve lives or society, but labor protections and human rights will.
That’s why sex workers are organizing to represent and defend their interests. This pop-up exhibit asks visitors to listen to the voices of sex workers, and reflect on how society defines work.
F.Y. Eye is proud to serve as the media buying partner for this groundbreaking exhibition, that aims to spark conversation, shift perceptions, and ultimately, decriminalize sex work in New York City, State, and beyond.
The Sex Workers’ Pop-Up Exhibition is sponsored by the Open Society Foundations.
The Open Society Foundations are the world’s largest private funder of independent groups working for justice, democratic governance, and human rights. They work to build vibrant and inclusive societies, grounded in respect for human rights and the rule of law, whose governments are accountable and open to the participation of all people.
The Open Society Foundations have a special focus on supporting those who face discrimination purely for who they are, such as Europe’s Roma people, and for those who find themselves pushed to the margins of mainstream society—such as drug users, prisoners, or sex workers.
Open Society Foundations work to ensure that sex workers have access to the quality health and social services they need, and that they can speak out for their rights.
