St Petersburg Art Show: Naked Celebrities on Canvas

Posted on : September 26, 2014 Author : Tracy Oliver
Jennifer Lawrence and other celebrities to be featured at the St Petersburg Art Show

Slated to open on October 30, 2014, the St Petersburg Art Show in Florida will no longer feature the Old Masters. Instead, it will focus on celebrities whose naked photos have surfaced over the internet. The exhibit will be sponsored by the Cory Allen Contemporary Art Gallery in collaboration with Los Angeles artist Jeff Hamilton aka XVALA. The Cory Allen Contemporary Art Gallery is described as the world’s first public relations gallery. The very controversial St Petersburg art show is soliciting massive reactions and criticisms for being exploitative and sensationalist as early as now. However, Allen said that that was not their goal. What they are trying to showcase is the dialogue between stolen properties and privacy in the worldwide web, and of how it takes and how much we give. The art show entitled “No Delete” is set to feature the hacked naked photos of Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton, Britney Spears, and Scarlett Johansson, among others. Around 20 to 24 works are expected to be on display despite protests and threats for legal action coming from the celebrities themselves.
