The Bible as bathroom stall

Outrage over an art exhibit which invites users to “deface the Bible” has put a negative spin on what would otherwise be dubbed an inspired curatorial program. The art work Untitled 2009, is being shown at Glasgow’s Gallery of Modern Art (GOMA) as part of the “Made in God’s Image” exhibit. The work consists of an open Bible, a container of pens and the words “If you feel you have been excluded from the Bible, please write your way back into it.”
