Gay exhibition cancelled in Milan

the "blasphemous" sculpture by artist Paolo Schmidlin

'Vado Retro"—an exhibition with 150 works about art and homosexuality, from Da Goeden to Pierre et Gilles—has been cancelled at Milan's Palazzo della Ragione. Protests were made over "blasphemous" sculpture of the pope made by the Milan artist Paolo Schmidlin. The sculpture, Miss Kitty, features a likeness of the pope dressed in pantyhose. The piece is not one of my favourite but it is surely a cuter version of the monstrous and corrupted face of the Pope. The show is going to Naples, let's see what happens there. Source Artforum
