Moving right along to Skins, a show referring "to the culture of tattoos, presumed by anthropologists as 'messages fraught with spiritual and moral significance... not only to imprint a drawing onto the flesh but also to stamp onto the mind all the traditions and philosophy of the group,' as methods of establishing communities, ascending or descending social ranks." The show will feature the works of Hwan Jahng, Sam Moyer, Reto Pulfer, Mariah Robertson, David Scanavino, Ryan Sullivan, Josh Tonsfeldt, Ned Vena and Andrea Longacre-White.
