Skin in the Game Act 2

This exhibition incorporates data visualizations, drawing, painting, dialogue, and live performance. Considering that the primary question of this project is “why are average income people seemingly more willing to consume tattoos vs. fine art?”, it forces the language of tattoo into the framework of fine art, and vice versa, to instigate both a public and private dialogue about why one form seems more“agreeable” than the other. The performance component of the exhibition tangibly confronts viewers with questions of patronage, collection, consumption, and ownership regarding art.
