Cgunit – If you are an art fan, you will just love this site. Cgunit features superb and unconventional art pieces, mostly photography and animated images. The blog’s creators define it as an “online gallery updated seven days a week and dedicated to bringing its readers the very best art images from around the web. This place is designed to keep you up to date with the art of many contemporary artists.”
Before entering this site I must warn you that it contains nudity and graphic images. Having that said, some images I found here reminded me of a poster by the Guerrilla Girls I saw this last summer (see below), at the Pompidou Centre in Paris, and it’s titled Do Women Have to Be Naked to Get into the Met. Museum? Do you think these numbers are disturbing? So do I. But for your information, the poster is from 1989. I don’t know where the current numbers stand but the poster I saw was part of the largest all-female art exhibition in the world, so I guess things are changing, and rightly so.
