Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton sat on a Resolute Desk note to read her old emails for an hour as part of an Italian art exhibit.
Clinton travels to Venice Theatrical Italy in Venice on Tuesday to become part of an exhibit created by artist Kenneth Goldsmith. Titled "HILLARY: Hillary Clinton's Emails," the exhibit featured a mock-up of the Oval Office Resolute Desk with more than 60,000 pages of downloaded Clinton emails printed, bound and prepared for anyone to browse.
"This exhibition is further proof that nothing wrong or contradictory can be found in these emails. It makes them accessible to everyone and allows everyone to read them, "says Clinton in a statement." They are just so boring. "
Ms Clinton stated, "This exhibit is further evidence that nothing wrong or contradictory can be found in these emails. This makes them accessible to everyone and allows everyone to read them. " And then, aside, she added, "They're just so boring."

Francesco Urbano Ragazi oversees the show where the e-mail exhibition was opened.
"In the digital age, making these documents accessible to everyone in an accessible format is a way to focus on something concrete to get rid of the impossible toxicity of ideological narratives," Ragazi said in a statement.
"The exhibit is a way of hinting for an alternative world that will never exist. We are happy that the real Hillary Clinton was part of this image full of opportunities, "said Ragazy. "Visiting Kenneth Goldsmith for HILLARY, she was not only in front of her emails. The exhibition is indeed a portrait of a powerful woman, but also a portrait of a historical change in our understanding of concepts such as transparency, propaganda, publicity and private space."
