A nude photo of Brooke Shields when she was 10, the piece de resistance of an exhibitionSeptember 30, 2009
An exhibition in which an image with Brooke Shields when she was only 10 years old appears naked has raised huge waves of criticism in London. The Art gallery hosts this period a series of pornographic photos, which were joined by that of the actress.
Critics immediately began to make scandal and to demand the removal of the images depicting Brooke in her childhood. The picture, made by Richard Price, is called “Spiritual America” and was made with the permission of the actress mother, as the artist sustains.
“We hope that this exhibition visitors to understand what the artist wanted to convey. We hope that its value was not diminished by the controversy created around it”, said one of the organizers.
The picture was recently exposed also at New York, where she raised controversy, but hasn’t been banned.
