Normalizing Naked

Can you imagine going about your everyday activities nude? Art Asia Pacific ‘s Michael Young wrote about his experience at artist Stuart Ringholt‘s naked tour of Sydney’s Museum of Contemporary Art. He begins his article describing what he and his wife “wore” in the nude and continues to describe the less than enlightening experience of the tour. Read Young’s account here.

The New York Times’ Mark Whittaker also wrote an account of the tour. Ending on a more uplifting note, the conclusion, was similar to Young’s in that the experience of the art was not enhanced by being naked.

Recently on May 25, in conjunction with the exhibition <laughter>, Apexart in New York City hosted one of Ringholt’s tours.  

Would you go?
