Nude Men

The Leopold Museum in Vienna, Austria, has created ructions with adverts for its latest exhibition: Nackte Männer (Nude Men) from 1800 to the present day. The adverts featuring three footballers in the buff - Vive La France by Pierre & Gilles - have created such a storm of protest that the museum has been forced to paste strips over the offending bits before enraged mothers defaced them (CLICK). All good publicity, of course. Nobody seems to have complained about Ilse Haider's giant installation Mr Big (2012) which hangs around the stairway at the side of the Leopold Museum. With about 300 exhibits, thanks to loans from all over Europe, the exhibition offers an unprecedented overview of the depiction of male nudes until 28 January 2013 (CLICK). So, it's serious stuff, not to be sneezed at.
