Show halts over Shields image

October 02, 2009|Associated Press

Britain's Tate Modern has temporarily closed an exhibition that includes a nude image of a 10-year-old Brooke Shields, after a visit from a London police unit that deals with obscene publications.

The Tate said in a statement Thursday that it has temporarily shut the room housing "Spiritual America" by artist Richard Prince. Sales of the catalog accompanying the exhibition were also put on hold.

Ruth Findlay, a spokeswoman for the museum, said the Tate was in discussions with the police.
