Successful Porn Art show at EYE Filmmuseum Amsterdam

Posted on June 11, 2017

By Jennifer Lyon Bell

It's always an honor to be invited to curate programs of the films I most love. My feature-length Porn Art presentation, illustrated with specially selected short film clips, gave me a chance to showcase some of my favorite explicit work in a museum setting.

Thanks to everyone who came out last night to Amsterdam’s lovely EYE Filmmuseum/Film Institute for the Porn Art show/presentation which I curated as part of their three-week Cinema Erotica program.

 

I’m always interested to hear from audience members as to which films they liked, and why. At the EYE bar last night, it was good to hear from audience members that each of the films I showed has won some new fans.

 

As promised, here’s a list of the film clips I showed at Porn Art. These filmmakers are all doing very interesting work, and I recommend exploring them further if you enjoyed the presentation.
