         Brandon Shimmel’s The Dirty examines object-commodity culture within aspects of
         celebrity and their individual sexual relationships. Increasingly we see celebrity as a
         means of exhibitionism, exploiting fame for living a provocative lifestyle rather than for
         talent.
         The Dirty tackles the overarching passivity of the general public in considerations of sex
         while displaying the prevalence, acceptance and integration of sex in contemporary
         culture. Shimmel’s work reclaims the risqué and directs the viewer to critically
         reconsider our reception of such graphic cultural content.
