Serrano's "Piss Christ" Vandalized in French Gallery
According to a opinion piece in today's Salon, vandals attacked and nearly destroyed Andres Serrano's famous artwork "Piss Christ" in an Avignon, France gallery. The gallery has decided to reopen the exhibit, and continues to display the photo even in its damaged condition.
This is not the first time that vandals have attacked "Piss Christ"--in the mid-1990s, the artwork was attacked in an Australian gallery.
