And here's more information from the news release...

Peculiar Works Project announces a new site-specific sextravaganza: Spring Pictures of the Floating World (and Art of the Bedchamber), a two-part performance art installation, reimagining 17th Century Japanese Shunga — pillow books — and their 5,000-year-old Chinese inspiration.

This unique hybrid event features multiple, immersive installations that will integrate live, multi-disciplinary performance in an exhibition context.

For four nights only — Thursday (7-11pm), Friday (7-11pm), Saturday (4-11pm) and Sunday (4-8pm) — more than 50 installation artists, designers, directors, composers, choreographers, puppeteers and performers will transform the abandoned basement of 66 East 4th Street between Bowery and Second Avenue into a grand pleasure palace.

Audiences can come and go throughout the exhibition hours, but due to its sexual nature this is an ADULTS ONLY event (NC17).

Visit the Peculiar Works Project website for more details and ticket info.
