Indecent texts to be immortalized in modern museums

New York, May. 2 : An artist's upcoming performance and installation at the New Museum in New York titled, 'Sext Me If You Can,' will hang paintings of indecent texts on the walls of the modern magazine from May 23-26.

Karen Finley, the sexually explicit performance artist, who had her NEA grant rescinded in the '90s, is no stranger to controversy.

After tackling subject matter including sexual abuse, rape and addiction, she is turning her focus to a lighter subject -- the sext -- and how it pertains to eroticism, technology and commerce, the Huffington Post reported.

For the piece, New Museum patrons will be able to personally commission a work by the artist by purchasing access to a private phone number.

For about 200-500 dollars, depending on the size of the painting, they will receive a reserved time slot, where you will receive a sexting tutorial.

After that, they will be led into a private space, cell phone in tow, where they are free to sext Finley as much as they please and whatever they send will serve as Finley's inspiration when she transforms their images or thoughts into a painting.
