Mette Ingvartsen

The Danish dancer Mette Ingvartsen is currently staging her nude performance "7 Pleasures" in New York City. (CAUTION: nude still image at link.) I imagine the show will look something like what you will see starting at the 2:20 mark in the video below. (More nudity, natch.)



For her theorizing, go to the second video.

Exposed Before Mona Lisa

Performance artist Deborah de Robertis's latest piece involved sitting in front of the Mona Lisa in the Louvre while exposing her genitals and shouting "Mona Lisa, my p****, my copyright." All while stunned tourists looked on.

Apparently she has a history of similar genital-exposing performance pieces. She explained later, "My message is to question the place of women artists in the history of art. That's why it's necessary to do my performances in museums."

She's being charged with sexual exhibitionism and assault (for biting the jacket of the security guard who dragged her away).

I'm not sure if Khrushchev would have liked her performance or not.

The Naked Anthropologist



Her stage name was Wendy Brown, but she was better known as the "Naked Anthropologist." She was a young woman who, circa 1970, decided to write her master's thesis in anthropology about the culture of nude dancing — and so, for the sake of research, she got a job as a dancer at a "bottomless" club off Sunset Strip in LA. The field research also helped pay for her education.

She was arrested once for indecent exposure and lewd conduct, but managed to use her academic credentials to serve as an expert witness at her own trial, testifying that in a survey of 5000 Californians, most didn't consider nude dancing obscene. She was acquitted.

As far as I know, she never revealed her real name. Nor did she reveal where she was attending university, only saying that it was somewhere in Northern California (even though her dancing job was in LA).

Life magazine sent a photographer out to take pictures of her, although I don't think they ended up doing a story about her. At least, I can't find anything in the Life magazine archive. But you can view all the photos at the Google Cultural Institute — all 247 of them.
