It's part of the ongoing seven-year series by the LA artist XVALA

The stolen images of naked celebrities that set off a furor this week will be displayed at a Florida art gallery beginning October 30th. It's part of a show entitled "No Delete" which collects seven years of work by the artist XVALA under the banner "Fear Google." This latest show will add the Celebgate images to previous works that featured Britney Spears and Scarlet Johansson, all culled from material made public by hackers or paparazzi. "In today's culture, everybody wants to know everything about everybody," the artist said in a statement. "An individual's privacy has become everyone else's business. It has become cash for cache." The images will be displayed life-sized and unaltered, without the permission of the subjects. The artist, through his publicist, argued that, "XVALA appropriating celebrity compromised images and the overall 'Fear Google' campaign has helped strengthen the ongoing debate over privacy in the digital era."
