On April 26 and 27 2008, 50 models and 48 photographers of all experiences and styles convened upon the first DEAC from as far as Florida and Texas to create fine erotic art amidst the ambiance of the Exotica Erotic Expo where special guests were present like Lithium Picnic, Emily Marylin, Nicotine and many others. Because of our strict guidelines, there were very few no-shows! Saturday night shooting ended in a festive bang with the Erotic Masquerade Ball in City Club with various fire/burlesque/freakshow/exotic stage performances and dancing until 5am. Overall, the wonderful diversity of art from all who participated can be seen here:
On August 2 and 3 2008, DEAC followed the Exotica Expo to its new location in Pontiac for a scaled down version 1.5 at Clutch Cargo nightclub and the Museum of New Art. However, this new location brought with it new restrictions of no full nudity near liquor and separated shooting venues, but our erotic art still prevailed!
On February 7 and 8 2009, DEAC came back to Detroit and the wonderful Leland Hotel where we were free to persue our passion for creating erotic art without city limitations or restrictions. This time, we joined up with the internationally acclaimed Dirty Show erotic art exhibition for a greater fit of shooting erotica during the day then attending the huge exhibition at night. We also added a new feature to the DEAC schedule...a variety of informative and educational workshops designed to cover a diversity of topics beneficial to our art.
