Call for Artists: The X Show

PULP Gallery and Bookstore

Charleston, SC

PULP Gallery and Bookstore is pleased to announce our second annual adults only art exhibition, The X Show. For centuries artists have explored the body as a way to understand facets of identity such as gender, sexuality, race and ethnicity.  We are seeking artists who explore these areas to make 'art & photographs for grown-ups.’  This  X-rated show opens on Valentine’s Day, 2017.


All U.S. artists at least 18 years old may submit original works in any medium.
