There is a standard way in for those less than gifted in art, and its a set formula, Do something provocative- (Sexual or deviant), Or take an everyday object and make it huge. If you think about it a little it seem deep, Think about it some more and its a sad cry for attention.

I presume you are being sarcastic. Andres Serrano is a great photographer. And doing well.

If these embroidered undies draw a shrill response from you, you are at risk of a heart attack when you see nudity, or sex. You really ought to see a shrink, maybe you still have hope of living in the world you don't find offensive and "out to get you" at every turn.

So we can have paintings of violent nightmares and statues of naked people but a couple of drawings on clothes that just about EVERYONE wears is a step too far?

This isn't art. This is ten pairs of underwear.

Artistically embroidered and arranged underwear. That makes it art.

I learned a long time ago that "art" is in the eyes of the beholder. My eyes reject underwear as art. Call me uneducated in the arts if you want.....but you can't change my mind about artistic mens underwear. To each his or her own.

I went into a Kmart the other day, and they had these same "undergarment" white things hanging near the socks department (without the writing on them). I was very offended.

If they had been violent images instead of sexual ones we probably wouldn't be having this conversation.

When artistic expression is censored unnecessarily/unfairly it feels strange and rather sad. I was teaching an advanced drawing course at a community college in a conservative area. I obtained permission to hire a model and the students, after a moment of shock and surprise, got to work as if it was normal. I had been hanging student works in the school library for a couple of semesters and added the drawings to the display. Visitors from the community saw the drawings and raised a royal ruckus.

It happened that I was studying educational law at the time. There was an established precedent and they would have been in violation if they had taken the drawings down. It was fascinating to see the staff reactions and consequent actions. The pictures remained on exhibit, but I was fired.
