Calling all feminist activists, nudists, Cleveland-based Democratsand people overdue for a laundry day. Photographer Spencer Tunick is looking for bold women to pose nude for a Cleveland-based photo shoot on July 17, If you're not familiar with Tunick's work, allow me to briefly summarize: naked people, lots of them.
Cleveland AFP - More than a hundred women stripped and posed naked with mirrors in Cleveland, answering a photographer's call to blend art with politics and portray Donald Trump as unfit for the White House. They gathered on the eve of the Republican National Convention, where the brash New York billionaire will be anointed the party's nominee for president after winning a raucous primary race despite alarm from the party establishment and the country at large about his divisiveness. One hundred of them will be featured in the picture to be unveiled shortly before the November 8 election.
Photographer Spencer Tunick's project featuring nude women was intended to protest "against the hateful repressive rhetoric of many in the Republican Party towards women and minorities". Naked people have little or no influence on society. But he never saw the plus women who posed nude outside the Quicken Loans Arena in downtown Cleveland to protest the Republican convention.
Last month, artist Spencer Tunick put out a call for women to pose nude at the Republican National Convention this summer. Tunick shared with Esquire some of the reasons the women gave for wanting to participate:. As a Hispanic, I want to be seen as a member of this community.
In the early morning hours on Sunday, women armed with giant mirrors stood along the Cuyahoga River in Ohio to protest Donald Trump's nomination at the Republican National Convention. According to Esquirethe women arrived in a vacant lot "between a fire station and a shipping warehouse" close to the convention, aiming their mirrors at the Quicken Loans Arena. The protest is a part of artist Spencer Tunick's art installation and documentary, Everything She Says Means Everythingwhich he had been planning since
As the sun rises Sunday morning over the Quicken Loans Arena in downtown Cleveland, women stand completely nude, holding large, round mirrors facing the arena. They're on an empty lot in between a fire station and a shipping warehouse, right on the Cuyahoga River. It's the day before the Republican National Convention kicks off, but on this side of the river, it's nearly silent, except for the snaps and pops of a camera.
Art and politics have always gone hand in hand, and nowhere did that prove more true than at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, where nude women gathered to welcome Donald Trump as part of an installation with the goal of interjecting a highly-politicized topic—women's bodies—into the day's proceedings. We want to express the belief that we will rely upon the strength, intuition, and wisdom of progressive and enlightened women to find our place in nature and to regain the balance within it. The mirrors communicate that we are a reflection of ourselves, each other, and of, the world that surrounds us.
One hundred women stood naked in public violating Cleveland, Ohio's nudity laws in a field across the river from the Republican National Convention early Sunday morning. Artist Spencer Tunick had invited the women to take off their clothes and hold mirrors above their heads to shine light and heat on the Cleveland Convention Center. For Tunick it's an art action.
