from – Come for the skin, stay for the art.

The Galapagos Art Space is hosting a show that’s out to prove that the pornography industry has as much talent in their brains as their bodies, with a multi-media extravaganza of erotic performances, nude photography, and titillating interviews with sizzling-hot adult performers.

“Just because the product might seem low-brow, the performers are not,” said curator and photographer Joshua Darling, whose credits include both erotic art and pornography.

Darling has asked several adult performers, including the famed Stoya of “Stoya Video Nasty,” [pictured] to demonstrate their impressive acrobatic skills — outside the bedroom.

Stoya will bring along her lyra hoop to perform aerobatics, said Darling.

“[She’s] kind of a megastar in her world, [but] she has these other skills that people might not assume,” he said. “A lot of these people are multi-talented, dynamic, and cool. I think they deserve celebration.”

Performances aside, the art space will host exhibitions of photography that are meant to be viewed as art, not porn.

“We have a cadre of some of the country’s more respected erotic photographers,” Darling explained.

“We have professional types from Parsons, published photographers from mainstream magazines; really experienced, respected photographers.”

Capping off the event will be three interviews, featuring Stoya, Buck Angel, a former-woman, now-man educator; and Lux Alptraum, who runs the website Fleshbot, a blog about pornography.

The Q and A will give porn fans a whole new perspective on their favorite stars.

“People are going to find out that a normal performer might not be just a girl who performs in films,” said Darling.

“She might be a novelist, or a genuine athlete; and a transgendered person who does sex films might be an educator.”

“The Other American Dream” at Galapagos Art Space [16 Main St. at Water Street in DUMBO (718) 222–8500,]. Dec. 3, 8 pm, $20.
