Best Places to Get Naked

by Danielle Pergament


Naked truth: Want to be immortalized and scratch that exhibitionist itch at the same time? Sign up to be in one of Spencer Tunick's famous photos. The artist made a name for himself for his compositions of thousands of artfully arranged naked people, like the photo at right, taken in the Rubens Hall of the Museum Kunst Palast in Düsseldorf, Germany. Tunick, who is originally from New York and has been documenting naked people since 1986, has famously disobeyed civil order with pictures of 18,000 nudies in Mexico City, not to mention New York, Vienna, Rome, London, Montreal, and dozens of other places where people tend to wear clothes. Tunick works solely with volunteers—you can sign up on his Web site to be notified next time he shoots in your neck of the woods. Just think—you too can be someone's screen saver.

Bodies of evidence: You name it—young, old, black, white, male, female, fat, thin—art brings all types.

Best reason to bring a towel: Only if you have second thoughts. But, then again, if you have second thoughts, your brow's not high enough to be here. Also, might want to have a pen handy so he can sign a print for you—his work commands a pretty penny at auction.

Don't forget your: Maturity. This isn't about seeing other people's private parts, it's about Art. Now grow up. (And bring a camera—hell, if Tunick is taking pictures of it all, why shouldn't you?)
