Former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton spent an hour flipping through printed copies of her emails at an art exhibition in Venice, Italy, titled, "HILLARY: The Hilary Clinton Emails," according to the exhibit's creator and curators.
Clinton came under scrutiny for her use of a personal server during her tenure as secretary of state.
"Hillary Clinton spent an hour [Tuesday] 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."
Goldsmith told HuffPost that Clinton's visit "was a surprise."
Curator Francesco Urbano Ragazzi said organizers thought it was a joke.
"Someone close to Mrs. Clinton contacted us very informally a few days before her visit," they told HuffPost via email. "We realized that it wasn't a joke only when we saw the security service inside the exhibition space at 9 am on Tuesday."
Goldsmith's exhibition makes over 60,000 pages of Clinton's emails public "for the first time in printed format."
Clinton told local media the exhibition "is further proof that nothing wrong or controversial can be found on these emails," HuffPost reported.
"It makes them accessible to everyone and allows everyone to read them," she added. "They are just a bunch of boring emails."
