Like Mike

Like Mike
Everything Is Fucked
On Saturday, police removed parts of an installation by Paul Yore from an exhibition in Melbourne, Australia. The installation, titled Everything Is Fucked, was part of a group exhibition celebrating the influence of Australian artist Mike Brown, who was prosecuted for obscenity in 1966.

Yore's work includes collaged photographs of children, and a shrine to Justin Bieber decorated with dildos. The exhibition, Like Mike: Now What??, opened on 18th May at the Linden Centre for Contemporary Arts, and will close on 7th July. Five years ago, police removed photographs by Bill Henson from a Sydney gallery.
