Hillary Clinton just pulled a strange stunt by showing up at an art show in Venice, Italy to sift through over 60K pages of her real emails printed out and displayed at a replica Oval Office desk for the exhibit titled “HILLARY: The Hillary Clinton Emails.”
The organizers of the art exhibit did not plan on Hillary being there.
“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,” they said.
So, basically, Hillary Clinton just showed up at the “Hillary’s Emails” exhibit with little warning to take a seat at the desk and proceed to read through the emails for over an hour.
This is even weird for her.
Hillary Clinton followed up the visit with this tweet mocking the GOP:
Breitbart has more to say about Hillary's surprise visit to the art show:
Former 2016 Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton spent nearly an hour sifting through emails as part of an art exhibit in Venice, Italy.
The former Democrat nominee is shown looking through more than 60,000 pages of emails printed out and placed in large stacks on a makeshift presidential resolute desk for an exhibit called, “HILLARY: The Hillary Clinton Emails,” by artist Kenneth Goldsmith.

Francesco Urbano Ragazzi, the exhibit’s curator, said in a statement that Clinton visited the Venetian Teatro Italia in Venice where the exhibit was being held on Tuesday and sat down at the resolute desk to look through the thousands of pages of emails.
Goldsmith told HuffPost Clinton’s visit to the exhibit was a complete surprise, while Ragazzi and other organizers thought her showing up was a joke.
The Huffington Post gave more details:
Hillary Clinton paid a visit to an art exhibition in Venice, Italy, that involved her sitting at a mock Resolute Desk and reading copies of her now-infamous emails.
Images cropped up online Wednesday showing the 2016 Democratic nominee for president in Despar Teatro Italia, which is currently hosting a solo exhibition by the artist and poet Kenneth Goldsmith called “HILLARY: The Hillary Clinton Emails.”
Goldsmith told HuffPost via email that Clinton’s visit “was a surprise,” while curator Francesco Urbano Ragazzi said organizers thought the possibility of her visiting was a joke.
“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,” they told HuffPost via email.
Goldsmith’s exhibition makes public “for the first time in printed format” some 60,000 pages of Clinton’s emails, which, per WikiLeaks, “were sent from the domain clintonemail.com between 2009 and 2013,” according to the description from exhibit co-organizer Zuecca Projects.
