This weekend, the first annual Brooklyn Dirty Book Fair at Brooklyn's Point Green Studio celebrates independently published erotic material. Titled Crushed, it will serve as a platform for artists dealing with sex, curated by Matthew Leifheit. Elements include a selection of lewd prints and publications for sale, two exhibitions featuring nudes by George Pitts (RIP), the queer zine collection of Phillip Aarons and Shelley Fox Aarons, dirty film screenings, readings and performances.
