I was at a conference yesterday and visited the exhibition space. One of the ‘attractions’ a vendor was using was an apparently nude model being covered in body paints. People were stopping to watch and were then approached by representatives from the vendor, a very well known brand.
I understand little about art and recognise it is something that can be seen anywhere. However, if you’re doing this you’re not doing art.
Is it exploitation? It may not be but it still felt highly inappropriate.
