WHAT IS #tofARTfair

Tom of Finland Foundation hosts the annual Tom of Finland Art & Culture Festival, which acts as a central hub for the queer erotic art community. The Festival provides a space for artists to exhibit their work and offers the public a unique opportunity to view and purchase erotic art from all over the world. Throughout the course of the Festival, guests get to enjoy works from artists, vendors and galleries. The weekend also includes performances, talks, panels, awards and more.  

Tom of Finland Foundation uses funds generated from donations, memberships and fundraising efforts to produce events reflective of our mission. Events such as the Art & Culture Festival particularly fulfill our responsibility to promote erotic art and artists.

2022 brings the 27th Tom of Finland Art & Culture Festival to three locations in two continents: Los Angeles, London and Lisbon on 8th – 9th October.

We want to provide artists the opportunity and time to interact with festival goers, collectors and fellow artists in a relaxed setting.
