Performance Artist Does Impromptu Reenactment Of ‘The Origin Of The World.’ Yes, THAT Painting.

If you’ve ever gazed into the beautiful void that is Gustav Courbet’s “The Origin of the World,” you’re probably familiar with just how provocative (and NSFW) the painting is.

As the title cleverly references, it is a portrait of the female genitalia, through which all human beings enter into life. Combining the romance of realism and the lustful voyeurism of erotic art, it’s, well, heavy stuff.

So, you can only imagine what would happen if someone — let’s say, a daring performance artist — attempted to reenact the racy anatomic still life from 1866… in front of an audience of museum patrons assembled at Paris’ Musée d’Orsay to see Courbet’s masterpiece face-to-face.

For 50 Years, This Free Love Pioneer Has Painted The Beauty Of Female Sexuality

For over 50 years, Dorothy Iannone has been bringing the ethos of free love to the world of painting. Transforming her wild brand of “ecstatic unity” into vibrant color palettes and unabashed nude forms, her artworks illustrate the beauty and mystical sublime of sex, sex and more sex.

At 80 years old, Iannone is still a poster woman for the depths and possibilities of erotic art. While her naked, fornicating figures fell under the swift guillotine of 1960s censorship, today the octogenarian is running off of several straight years of gallery attention. Solo exhibition after retrospective, the art world seems eager to cozy up to the self-taught artist and her canvases teeming with female sexuality and spiritual love. No longer deemed “pornographic,” Iannone’s hailed as a “high priestess, matriarch, sex goddess.”

Mona Lisa’s Supposed Skeleton May Finally Solve Centuries-Old Mystery

Researchers in Florence, Italy, are opening a centuries-old family tomb in hopes of solving one of the art world’s most pressing mysteries. The tomb in question belongs to the family of Lisa Gherardini, the 16th century Florentine woman thought to have been the face of Leonardo da Vinci’s “Mona Lisa.”

According to NBC, a team of specialists have begun a series of DNA tests on three different skeletons found in an Ursuline convent in Florence. The bones were originally discovered in 2012 and are believed to include the remains of Gherardini, the wife of a merchant who at one point lived across the street from da Vinci.

Now, researchers are turning to the Gherardini family tomb, located in Florence’s Basilica della Santissima Annuziata, where they hope to excavate the skeletons of the supposed muse’s sons. The experts plan on comparing DNA evidence from the convent excavation to the bones in the basilica in order to verify that they indeed have access to Mrs. Gherardini’s remains.

“Stamford is going to just flood artists”

The streets of downtown Stamford will transform into one large art exhibit this weekend for the City’s first ever Artwalk. The free event, created by the Stamford Downtown Special Services District, will showcase more than 90 artists in shops, restaurants, and galleries downtown.

Stamford DSSD President Sandy Goldstein says, “We want to make sure that people recognize the downtown as an art venue.”

Patrons can visit over 35 venues on the Artwalk route, where they will run into live music, performances, and special activities a long the way.

Artwalk curator Valerie Cooper says, “It’s just a wonderful conglomerate of diversity, culture, of different nationalities, and my vision was to put something together that reflected exactly what Stamford sort of stands for.”

The Old Town Hall Museum and UConn’s campus art gallery are just two of six participating galleries that will feature special exhibits for the event.
