Spencer Tunick's Ohio 1 at Cleveland Museum of Art
CLEVELAND, OHIO.- The Cleveland Museum of Art unveils Spencer Tunick’s Ohio 1. Since 1992, Tunick has organized over 65 contemporary site-related installations in public places worldwide. His environmental projects often encompass nude volunteers, grouped together in public spaces; he then takes photographs of the installations. His projects create an experience that is at once a challenge to culturally held views of nudity and privacy. Tunick’s installations are an opportunity to re-examine social, political and legal issues surrounding art in public.

Joining Tunick will be: Tom E. Hinson, curator of photography at the Cleveland Museum of Art; Amy Gilman, the project curator and Trustee Mark Schwartz from The Museum of Contemporary Art Cleveland (MOCA) and MOCA. This photograph features the greatest participation of volunteers in a North American installation documenting live nude figures in public space. This photograph was taken in Cleveland, Ohio, on Sat., June 26, 2004 and more than 2,700 volunteers from Northeast Ohio and the United States participated. Spencer Tunick will be in attendance for the unveiling.

This will be the Museum’s first permanent work by Tunick, and is among the very best works he has produced. The photograph showcases his creative and aesthetic talents to orchestrate and record complex public installation. The photograph will remain on view in the recent acquisitions gallery 102 after the unveiling.
