If 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.
