In a shocking display of rape culture promotion and misogynistic profiteering, an "artist" known as XVALA is set to display the stolen nude pictures of celebrities at Cory Allen Contemporary Art in St. Petersburg, Florida.
The “artist,” whose identity is ironically unknown, is planning on appropriating these private images, taken and viewed without consent, and passing off the spectacle as art. And regardless of individual opinions regarding the celebrities involved, this is a gross violation of privacy.
The exhibition, titled "No Delete," is made even more problematic by the apparent focus on cis women. Women, who are already engulfed in a culture that simultaneously sexualizes and shames them, consistently fall prey to the sick sense of entitlement this “show” is steeped in. Long story short, this show is HARMFUL, even beyond the individuals involved. But even if it weren't, this is completely unacceptable.
This is not art. This is nothing more than an atrocious display of misogyny, entitlement, and rape culture masquerading behind a three letter ideal and a not-so-deep “message” about Internet usage.
They deserve better. We deserve better. Don't let this "show" come to fruition.
