In 2012, the British artist staged a soccer match between two teams of men—none of whom wore a stitch of clothing, save for socks and sneakers. Peake, 31, has also photographed himself and others in the buff, combining the images with colorful graffiti, such as 2001’s I Get Ratings, You Get Hatings. His art pieces and performances (like the one pictured), comment on the human form, gender norms, and our Internet-age appetite for voyeurism and have been a hit at very serious establishments like London’s Tate Modern. Still, the multimedia artist’s brand of provocation is decidedly playful.—F.Z.
