Brooke Shields continues to be a concern for Sir Nicholas Serota, director of Tate Galleries. He says he is still in talks with the Metropolitan Police to resolve matters around the removal of a 1983 depiction of the actress, called 'Spiritual America', which was due to be displayed at Tate Modern as part of its Pop Life exhibition. It was removed the night before the show opened after a warning from Scotland Yard that the naked portrait of the then 10-year old, heavily made-up and damp from having had a bath, could break obscenity laws. Although the work by Richard Prince has been exhibited widely in America, including a recent outing in New York (with no major controversy whatsoever), Serota said that there had been greater sensitivity around such images in the aftermath of the Soham affair, when two young girls were murdered by a school caretaker. He says that the legislation is in the process of being clarified with the police, so that such incidences in the gallery can be avoided in future.
