Australia: Artists hit back against censorship of nude photography
A group of Australian artists are out to show that art cannot be censored by announcing plans to hold a nude-only art exhibition.
The move comes after vision-impaired artist Dennis Mealor’s naked photograph of a mature-aged woman, titled Viva Italia, was suddenly withdrawn from the Bundaberg Arts Festival without an explanation in October 2013.
The group is calling itself the BRAG Traders, and has created the independent exhibition because of the expulsion of Mr Mealor’s artwork from the 2013 festival.
