The Fine Art of Sexting

Karen Finley wants your dick pics. Well, not exactly. But for a recent show at New York’s New Museum, the legendary performance artist turned sexts into art.

For the exhibition, Finley invited patrons to commission an original artwork by coming in for a ten-minute “sitting” in which they were given a number and invited to sext her. From these sexts, Finley made paintings, which are now on display at the museum. At the end of the exhibit, those lucky patrons of the arts will get to take home their sext portraits for $200-$500.

We think this a clever idea and a great deal for the lucky few who got to “sit” for Finley. It also gives us a chance to think about how technology (especially smartphones) has sped up the act of getting off with a partner. With services like Snapchat making the sext an ephemeral object, Finley’s paintings invite us to take a longer look at how we frame our bodies in the heat of the moment.
