LESSONS 1-10 / LAUREL NAKADATE / MOMA PS1 / LONG ISLAND CITY, NY / 2011 / WEBSITE

In Lessons 1-10, Laurel uses her body in front of men but this time modeling in underwear and a school girl uniform for an artist. She - the “object of the male gaze” - looks directly at the camera.

The photographs below are snapshots of Lessons 1-10 as displayed at MoMA PS1 and are a selection of stills of the 1 minute and 59 second video.
