“Sext Me if You Can”
New Museum (Lobby), 235 Bowery, NYC
an interactive performance installation taking place in the New Museum Lobby in full view of Museum visitors. For this performance, Karen Finley creates a limited edition of paintings inspired by “sexts” that she receives from participating patrons. Participation takes the form of a commission and requires a ten-minute private and anonymous sitting on-site during announced performance times (bring your own cell phone!). Through this process, the erotic exchange with the artist—bound by rules of commerce—transforms into a lasting and collectible work of art. Presented as part of NEA 4 in Residence.
The U.S. Senate, bought and paid for by the Gun Lobby. Here’s exactly how much the going rate for a soulless Senator is these days.
