Midori: Returning for a Special Performance

The Seattle Erotic Art Festival strives to bring you world-class erotic art and performances. Erotic art that is meant to stimulate, arouse, and mostly— make you think. For our 15th Anniversary event, we took great measures to ensure that our performance artists embody our desire to showcase thought-provoking erotic art. As such, we are thrilled to announce the return of Midori, a world-renowned artist, educator, author, and all-around wonderful human being. Midori is returning to SEAF for one-night only, with a special performance designed to provoke thought and discussion. Learn more about Midori and her performance below; and don’t forget to get your tickets!


Midori is a multidisciplinary artist fascinated with giving shape and texture to emotion, memory, desire, beauty, repulsion, collective memory and subconscious revisions of experience. A Tokyo native and long-time San Franciscan, she’s known for her durational and interactive performances and installations. She’s shown at the San Francisco Asian Art Museum, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, Das Arts Amsterdam, Gorilla Gallery Oaxaca Mexico, VN Jaeger & Schwarzwald in Vienna, among others.
