The complaints to council and police about the 101 Vagina Exhibition in Redfern, Sydney got on the front page of MX Newspaper on Friday 28th June 2013.
The people who complained had no idea how much they would be helping with publicity :)
The article in not online, so you’ll need to click on the second image to see it large and read it.

The gallery complied with police requests to cover first the windows and then the garage door. Many people expressed outrage that events in our society can be so skewed by complaints from a small minority.
The 101 Vagina flier is here!
It has already courted controversy, being banned from distribution on car windscreens at the recent Renaissance festival in case children see the images! Which child is going to care about seeing a vagina? They only just came out of one! It is really only us adults, so far removed from our passage through it, who take offense, and therewith teach our children that they are taboo.
Feel free to print and distribute it. Or if you give me your address I’ll send some out to you :)
