Cockadoodle: The Erogenous Art of Maurice Vellekoop is a flamboyant new exhibition that uncorks the Canadian artist’s contribution to illustration, underground comics and contemporary erotica. It will be Maurice Vellekoop’s first European solo exhibition with a wide selection of his erotic output on show alongside examples of his mainstream editorial work for the likes of The New Yorker, Vogue and Rolling Stone. Vellekoop draws from a vast and familiar pool of televisual and filmic motifs to reflect wider truths, suppressed fantasies and classic archetypes, fashioning a unique visual signature that is at once widely marketable yet unabashedly erotic.

Cockadoodle: The Erogenous Art of Maurice Vellekoop, curated by Bren O’Callaghan, is supported by Arts Council England, Manchester Pride Fringe and Homotopia Festival.
