On Sunday morning June 2nd, we documented the “WE THE NIPPLE” protest organized by our friend, artist Spencer Tunick, in partnership with the National Coalition Against Censorship (NCAC). The project meant to challenge current censorship laws that embargoes visual artists from freely sharing visual art on social media platforms – targeting Facebook and Instagram, primarily.
Outside Facebook’s New York Offices, participants covered their nipples with stickers of photographed male nipples—provided by TV personality Andy Cohen, artist Andres Serrano, actor Adam Goldberg, Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith, artist Paul Mpagi Sepuya, and Tunick himself.
Images from FAYMOUS were gifted to the cause and freely circulated the media helping to draw millions of views to the movement and provided a unique vantage point highlighting Spencer Tunick’s heroic effort as an Artist and Activist.
