Depiction of nude on a prayer mat too provocative for Ontario art school
The school says that without either the name of the artist - whom has been identified as a Muslim woman - or a statement from her, the piece must stay down
The "safe space" people have struck again at another Ontario university campus.
Monday night, an untitled, anonymous piece of art hanging in a student show at the Ontario College of Art and Design University in downtown Toronto was quietly removed.
It was a green Islamic prayer mat with the black outline of a nude woman on it.
In its place is a notice, apparently from the curators and jurors of the show, saying that absent knowing "the intent of the work that was previously hanging in this space," they had decided to "remove it temporarily ... until a statement from the artist can accompany it."
