Spencer Tunick’s Super Naked Sydney Opera House Installation


Artist Spencer Tunick — who we hung out with last year in the Hamptons — has unveiled the stunning photo from his latest installation, The Base, which was created using over five thousand nude people at the Opera House during Sydney’s Mardi Gras festival in March.

“For me it was about bringing the gay and lesbian community together with the straight community to make an equal fabric, and to be the base of this incredibly historic Opera House,” Tunick told the Sydney Morning Herald. “So it is significant politically for me, because I am a believer that the base, the core, of any open-minded free society is its equal treatment of all its citizens — including gays and lesbians, and their right to marriage, and all of their legal rights.”
