Art fans have to squeeze between two naked people to get into Royal Academy exhibition – The Sun

ART lovers could get rubbed up the wrong way at a new exhibition — as they have to squeeze past two naked people to get in.

The Royal Academy of Arts is currently looking for participants to form the “nude doorway”.

It will be a recreation of a controversial art installation by Marina Abramovic which led to cops arriving.

The Serb and then-lover Ulay stood naked opposite each other as visitors pushed between them in Bologna, Italy, in 1977.

The new London show’s curator Andrea Tarsia said: “When it was first performed some people just stood back.

“They couldn’t quite handle it and weren’t entirely sure of what they were seeing. Some went through. Some fairly charged through. A few went through a number of times, actually.”
