Meet the Artist Turning Unsolicited Dick Pics Into an Art Exhibition [NSFW-ish]

Say hello to Whitney Bell, the California based feminist mastermind of an artist tackling unsolicited dick pics one art exhibition at a time.

In a living room that would probably suit your grandparent’s house a little too well, Bell has transfigured her project, displaying a wide range of penises she (and plenty of others) really wasn’t on planning on seeing on.

Sadly, we still live in a world where when a woman makes art to mean something or change something, it’s “man hating”. In a timely interview with VICE, she tells them that the exhibition “isn’t dick-hating or man-hating. I love a good dick. I just don’t love harassment. That’s what this needs to start being seen as. All of these dicks are unsolicited. They didn’t come from requests. I’ve asked for dick pics personally. But I don’t want to see a dick from some guy I’ve never met, or someone I went on one date with when it’s not condoned.”

Bell explained that “it all sort of began with a really beautiful dick shadow picture I was sent by a guy I was seeing. I sent it to one of my friends who said, “That picture is so beautiful it should be in a museum.” That’s when I thought of having a gallery of dick pics.”

The exhibition goes so much farther that just an excuse for a trendy figurehead magazine to write about dicks all day. The exhibition tackles the dark side of nudes (and no, that doesn’t mean your butt). By receiving dick-donations of other unsolicited phallic photos, Bell compiled an arsenal of unwanted nudes in a patchworked middle finger to online harassment.
