Re: “This Guy's Penis Is a Work of Art

We were NEVER told that nudity was not allowed in the space. We had a contract and THERE WAS NO CLAUSE ABOUT NUDITY in that document. Tabing says that the two rules are “…no nudity and return the space to its original condition.” I am certain that a nudity rule was not in place when I began my residency. I would never enter into such a conservative and close-minded arrangement. Again, I must reiterate that I sent a proposal far in advance describing the project in detail – including the nudity. I am not seditious.

Re: “This Guy's Penis Is a Work of Art

I'm so pleased a dialogue has opened regarding censorship and the nude (male) form. I just want to clarify that I was never told to NOT show the photos at the opening. NEVER! It's also important to note that a few weeks before the incident, I sent a DETAILED PROPOSAL describing the nude photo shoot not only to CAC and Links Hall, but also to the other artists in the space. Never was I trying to be covert or even controversial. I was simply making artwork in the same way that I have been doing for over 20 years.
