Political correctness in art: Royal Academy nudes to have ‘gender equality’ in new post #metoo exhibition

The Royal Academy is to ensure its next exhibition of nudes has an equal gender split of naked men and women, as it navigates the post-Me Too era, Telegraph reports.

The Academy, which has just undergone a major restructure to celebrate its 250th anniversary, will have almost exact parity between paintings, sculptures and drawings of male and female nudes in its forthcoming exploration of Renaissance art.

The Renaissance Nude is due to open in March 2019 and will include around 85 works created from 1400 to 1530 aiming to track the development of the ‘idea and ideal’ of the nude in Europe.
