I May Not Know What “Art” Is…..
…but I know it when I see it. And this (or some of this) is it:
BERLIN – One hundred virtually naked women between the ages of 18 and 65 displayed their bodies in a Berlin art gallery Thursday to prepare for a one-day exhibit Friday.
Wearing only transparent tights, the 100 nearly nude models stood, kneeled or sat down on the floor of the New National Gallery before a small crowd of journalists.
Hey: this sounds like the Oval Office during the Clinton years. MORE:
Bystanders peered in through windows from outside the building.
“It’s challenging and aggressive for the audience,” said Vanessa Beecroft, the Italian-born New York artist, who said it was the largest such exhibit she had ever organized.
“It’s not pleasant, it’s not sensual and it’s not beautiful,” Beecroft told Reuters.
Yep. More and more it sounds like the Oval Office during the Clinton years. Still more:
“The models are not wearing anything, no shoes, no make-up or special hairstyles. I wanted to see if they could still develop a distance to the audience, as if they were part of a portrait, a human portrait and not just objects.”
The women will stand for three hours in a square area in the center of the museum during Friday evening’s exhibit. They will not be allowed to talk or look at each other and must remain standing as long as possible.
Remaining standing as long as possible? Yes! That sounds like the Oval Office during..(oh, fill in the rest yourself…..)
