Visual Artist Karen Finley turns intimate messages into works of art. In collaboration with New York’s New Museum, these intimate messages turned into art will push the boundaries of mobile eroticism in Finley’s ‘Sext Me if You Can.’ This gallery will be an an interactive performance installation that is inspired by erotic messages sent through mobile phones.

Finley will create paintings inspired by intimate messages that have been sent in by anonymous participants. At specific times of the day, chosen participants will be led to a private on-site location, where they will be given access to a special preset mobile number to craft and send their erotic text inspirations to the artist.

Finley will then take the messages and draw her interpretation and display them throughout the period of the interactive installations.
