Kienholz's Hoerengracht!

From next week until February, the UK's National Gallery will get a taste of America's whore appreciation: the life-sized sculpture Hoerengracht will be on display, a movie-set of sorts in which Ed and Nancy Kienholz recreated a 1980s Amsterdam brothel in loving detail. For those of you interested in a purely American version, his Roxy's is a take on a 1940s Nevada brothel - but it's in a private collection. Hoerengracht has been touring for better than ten years, so if your artsy-fartsy demeanor has kept you from experiencing red-light Amsterdam directly, here's a chance to do so while retaining your high-falootin' airs. Just don't plan on fucking anybody there.
