DO IT IN A LARGE PUBLIC PLACE LIKE AN ART GALLERY AND IT’S ART. AT HOME ITS KIDDIE PORN.

This really is bothersome on more then one level. Seems like anything that’s on display in a gallery like ... oh let me think.  How about a crucifix in a jar of urine.  Oh well. It’s art if it’s in a gallery. 

How about a photograph of a ten year old girl, oiled and made to look like a woman?  Is that kiddie porn? Is it porn at all or just a photo of a naked and oiled and made up kid having fun?

The newest filth going on display at the Tate Modern will show a nude Brooke Shields at age ten.  I guess back then her parents or guardian or whoever gave the okay.  I haven’t seen the photo and don’t know if it is art or it isn’t.  ??? Does it depend on how the pix was shot and what sort of background?  Somehow, and maybe I’m greatly out of step with the time here, nude ten year olds as described in this article fall far short of ‘art’ imho.

But wait.  That isn’t all.  The latest ‘artful display’ will include pornography including penetration. 

Just so we’re clear and understand things.
Two lady police officers who have kids can’t baby sit for one another (as reported here recently) because of concerns re. child safety.  If they care for one another’s children more then 14 days a year as the new law has been written, they must register and have tests of some sort to prove they are not criminals.  Never mind they’re cops. 
But an art (?) gallery can display an oiled nude of a ten year old.  Got it.

Try passing out porn in public spaces and you might find yourself up on charges of some kind I am certain.  Public nuisance perhaps.  Ah but .. give it a name, call it art and Bob’s your uncle. 

Here you go. See what you make of this.  And lets have no talk of censorship.  Remember. It’s “ART.”

Tate Modern to display nude picture of 10-year-old Brooke Shields alongside giant pornographic images

A provocative nude picture of a 10-year-old Brooke Shields will appear in a new exhibition at the Tate Modern, it was revealed today.

Gallery chiefs said they sought legal advice before including the work, titled Spiritual America, in the Pop Life: Art In A Material World show, which opens on Thursday.

The exhibition also features huge sexually explicit images of penetration and works made from the pages of pornographic magazines.

Richard Prince’s image of Shields shows the actress from the knees up, naked, oiled and wearing make-up, looking directly at the viewer.

It is hung in a special room at the south London gallery with a notice on the door warning visitors they may find the image ‘challenging’.

Prince himself described the 1983 work, which is in fact a photograph of a photograph taken by another artist, Gary Gross, as ‘an extremely complicated photo of a naked girl who looks like a boy made up to look like a woman’.

The picture was originally shown anonymously in a disused shop in a run-down area of New York, and the Tate show is believed to be the work’s first appearance in a UK gallery.

Jack Bankowsky, the exhibition’s co-curator, said he hoped the artistic interest in Spiritual America would not be overshadowed by controversy over its content.

‘I hope that people respond to what is provocative and understand what the artist was trying to achieve,’ he said.

‘If it turned into that kind of brouhaha it would overwhelm the work and become a monosyllabic conversation.’

Prince wanted the viewer to respond to the ‘eerieness’ of Gross’ original image, Mr Bankowsky said.

A spokesman for the Tate said they had given careful consideration to the work and the reaction it could provoke before including it in the exhibition.

‘As with any artwork that contains challenging imagery, Tate has sought legal advice and evaluated the situation,’ the spokesman said.

‘Tate has taken measures to inform visitors of the nature of the work, providing information outlining the intentions of the artist.

‘This is an important work by Richard Prince which has been publicly exhibited on a number of occasions, most recently in Richard Prince’s major retrospective, Spiritual America, at the Guggenheim in New York.’

  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
