What’s With this Naked Art Viewing Thing? G Gallery Bares All Tonight!

naked_tour_guideIf you happen to be in Australia this week, you should’ve already registered for the naked art tours of the current James Turrell exhibition at the National Gallery of Art in Canberra. If not, you’re out of luck because the three naked tours (Wednesday at 5:30pm, Thursday at 7am! And 7:30pm) are already sold out. According to the Huffington Post, there is a long list of museums that have joined in this growing trend, including the Leopold Museum in Austria and the El Segundo Museum of Art in California.

But Houston’s art-loving nudists/naturists/exhibitionists should not feel left out—G Gallery has got you covered! (Or not.) For tonight’s opening of Bare Walls: A Collective of Nudes, the dress code is business attire/clothing optional. (The invitation states: “Dress Classy or Don’t Dress at All.”) The show of original body-inspired artwork by local artists also promises all-nude performance art, a life-drawing station, and one hundred nude models.

    In the second paragraph above, the link to the event appears to be broken.

    For the record, southmorehouse presents has been planning an event like this for a few years, before the news of the Canberra exhibit, even before Portland’s World Naked Bike Ride had its nude museum crawl in 2013. southmorehouse presents has also facilitated clothing-optional events in various spaces since early 2012.

    We are grateful to G Gallery for letting us use the space to bring established and underground artists together in a clothing-optional event. We are also grateful to Glasstire for promoting tonight’s event.
