As you can see, the Watermill Center gala exhibits are not for the meek. Yes, that is a giant butt plug (a 60-foot inflatable piece by Paul McCarthy), and yes, that is a giant red phallus the body-painted-but otherwise-largely-unclothed women performers of the “Voluptuous Horror of Karen Black.” Eventually the phallus was mounted (ahem!) on a stage, some guitars slung over shoulders, and the ladies gave a spirited, if confusing, show. The work was authored by Kembra Pfahler.
