Hillary Clinton’s emails, long a political talking point, have become art — and the former secretary of state herself went to take a look.

The 2016 Democratic presidential nominee looked through printed copies of her emails and sat at a replica of the Oval Office’s Resolute Desk during a visit Tuesday to an art exhibit in Venice, Italy, titled “HILLARY: The Hillary Clinton Emails,” according to the exhibit’s creator and curators.

“Hillary Clinton spent an hour yesterday reading her emails at my exhibition of all 62,000 pages of them in Venice,” American poet and artist Kenneth Goldsmith tweeted Wednesday. “She is pictured here at a replica of the Oval Office Resolute Desk, stacked with her emails.”
