The "Naked Men" show in the Leopold Museum in Vienna remains successful: the museum has counted 188,000 visitors. This autumn, Parisians will be able to experience the exhibition in their city.
The exhibition by Tobias Natter and Elisabeth Leopold will be shown from 23 September 2013 to 2 January 2014 in the Musee d’Orsay in Paris.
As the show has been very successful in Vienna, expectations for Paris are naturally high. The Musee d’Orsay is, however, used to crowds of visitors. 3.6 million people visit the museum per year. It is thus one of the main crowd-pullers of the capital of France.
While preparations for the exhibition in Paris are at full blast, it is possible to see the show until 4 March in Vienna.
The nudist tour at the museum on 18 February 2013 proved to be a sensation and a success: young and old men and women were wandering through the museum, naked as God created them.
The special tour was definitely a PR coup. The museum said that there were reports about the event in newspapers and on TV in over 60 countries.
