Raid ‘Stealable Art Exhibition’

Under the name “Stealable Art Exhibition”, the gallery showcased the work of international artists and allowed visitors to steal one piece of artб there was no security and no staff for the exhibition. Most of the work was stolen 30 minutes after opening.

The gallery called on all members of the public to visit, “Even if you have no interest in art, if your walls seem a bit lonely, or if you’ve just always wanted to be an art thief, come on by.”

The “take one artwork only” rule raised remarkable questions for both the artists and viewers, such as, “What kind of artworks will the artists present knowing they can be stolen?” and “What is the relationship between the viewers and the artworks?”
