In what they’re claiming to be in the name of art and public discussion, an art gallery in Florida has announced that they’ll be featuring the leaked nude photos of Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Upton in an upcoming show. C-c-c-controversy. They pictures will apparently be printed and displayed unaltered on life-sized canvases as a part of artist XVALA’s “Fear Google” Campaign.
Along with the nudes which have sparked a lot of important conversation about privacy (obvs), the definition of sex crimes and the nature or workings of iCloud, the exhibition will also feature the leaked half-nude mirror shot of Scarlett Johansson, Britney Spears with a shaved head and other “private” images of celebrities.
The show is not meant to be an attack or a malicious exploitation of the celebrities, rather the show titled “No Delete” aims to further fuel the debate on privacy in the digital age. It’s an important one – to say the least – but the response or outcry will be interesting.
