Hillary Clinton dropped by at an art exhibition in Venice, Italy and guess what did she do? The former US Secretary of State sat beside a replica of the Oval Office Resolute Desk and read copies of her emails. “Found my emails at the Venice Biennale. Someone alert the House GOP,” Clinton wrote in a tweet along with a picture of herself reading her mails.

Clinton was photographed at the solo exhibition named “HILLARY: The Hillary Clinton Emails” and hosted by artist and poet Kenneth Goldsmith. Goldsmith, in fact, also shared pictures on his Twitter account.

Clinton’s visit to the art exhibition, in fact, was a “surprise,” Goldsmith told HuffPost. Curator Francesco Urbano Ragazzi, on the other hand, said that organisers were of the opinion that the news of Clinton’s visit could be a “joke” in all probability.
“Someone close to Mrs. Clinton contacted us very informally a few days before her visit. We realized that it wasn’t a joke only when we saw the security service inside the exhibition space at 9 am on Tuesday,” Ragazzi told HuffPost.
Around 60,000 pages of Clinton’s emails were made public “for the first time in printed format” at Goldsmith’s exhibition, according to HuffPost. Meanwhile, Ragazzi described the moment when Clinton attended the exhibition.
“Everybody was very excited (during Clinton’s visit). I think the scene was so extraordinary that many customers believed that she was just a lookalike at first,” Ragazzi told HuffPost.
In a tweet, Kenneth Goldsmith put up Clinton’s statement after she read her mails at the exhibition. “Mrs Clinton stated, “This exhibition is further proof that nothing wrong or controversial can be found on these emails. It makes them accessible to everyone and allows everyone to read them”. And then, as an aside, she added: “They are just so boring”,” Kenneth Goldsmith wrote in his post on Twitter.
