Amsterdam red light exhibit for National Gallery

Published 18/11/2009

The sordid world of Amsterdam's red light district is being laid bare in the National Gallery, one of Britain's most revered arts institutions.

Scantily-clad models of women feature in the life-sized recreation of claustrophobic streets, as visitors stroll past garishly-lit, almost dungeon-like windows.

The display was put together by American artists Ed Kienholz, who died in 1994, and his wife Nancy Reddin Kienholz. Titled The Hoerengracht (Whore's Canal) is the first of its kind to be shown there and runs until February 21. Admission is free.
