Last night’s opening of “Who Shot Natalie White” at the ROX Gallery in LES was, unsurprisingly, received by quite the controversy among locals. In response to the bountiful display of boobs and self-pleasuring facing out onto Delancey Street, some outraged elderlies called upon the police to put an end to the unsavory scene.
But boys will be boys. When the upstanding officers of the 7th precinct were greeted by the topless Miss White herself, they were apparently struck with a sudden artistic sensibility. As the 24-year old model-turned-exhibitionist-muse guided the cops through each of the 25 male photographer’s artistic visions of her naked body, it finally clicked. So this is art — now we get it! Needless to say, the show will go on as planned.
“Who Shot Natalie White,” Various Artists, April 16- May 18, ROXNYX, Lower East Side,
