This year, MoMA, and just about everyone else in this city, commemorated the 100-year anniversary of the completion of Picasso’s masterpiece, Les Demoiselles d’Avignon. 2008 is rapidly approaching, but the celebration isn’t over just yet. Uptown gallery Francis M. Naumann asked a crop of contemporary artists to submit their take on Picasso’s beastly whores. “The Demoiselles Revisited” will be up at the gallery through Friday. After the jump, a few different takes — all of them much more SFW than the image above, we promise. —Rachel Wolff
