Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Upton’s sexually explicit photos, which were released in a huge leak of nude celebrity photos Sunday, are now becoming front and center for an art exhibit.
The nude images, printed on life-size canvases and unaltered, are the most recent addition to the Los Angeles artist XVALA’s “Fear Google” campaign, which focuses on privacy in the digital age. (RELATED: Nude Photo Leak Contains Photos Of Jennifer Lawrence And Kate Upton)
Though everyone has seen the images online, they will be available for the public to see at the “No Delete” show at Cory Allen Contemporary Art’s “The Showroom” in St. Petersburg, Fla.
Lawrence and Upton’s nude photos join a seven-year collection of Google images of celebrities at their most vulnerable. It features Scarlett Johansson’s nude photos, which leaked in 2011, and paparazzi photos from when Britney Spears shaved her head.
“In today’s culture, everybody wants to know everything about everybody. An individual’s privacy has become everyone else’s business,” XVALA said in a statement to E! News.
A significant amount of celebrities’ nude photos, including Upton, Lawrence, Kirsten Dunst and Ariana Grande, leaked Sunday on this 4chan post. Hackers were reportedly able to access the celebrities’ personal phones because of an Apple iCloud bug, though details are still emerging.
However, the art show’s legality is questionable because both Lawrence and Upton have threatened prosecution if anyone posts the stolen photos, and the FBI has now launched an investigation into the matter. (RELATED: FBI Launches Investigation Into Nude Photo Scandal)
