“Our bodies are also occupied territories. Perhaps the ultimate goal of performance, especially if you are a woman, gay or a person ‘of color,’ is to decolonize our bodies and make these decolonizing mechanisms apparent to our audience in the hope that they will get inspired to do the same with their own.” -Guillermo Gómez-Peña

SKIN is seamless, endless, connective, and porous. This multimedia exhibition explores the possibilities of rethinking media consumption as shared skin, evoking and awakening visitors’ senses of taste, touch, and smell through onscreen images and performance. As we collectively digest images, side-by-side embrace skin, so too do we create memories beyond the tangible experience of watching and feeling. The film/video and performance presented feature the sexually, gender, and racially queer and marginalized. They play with the boundaries of visual surfaces. SKIN is presented as part of the 6-8 MONTH PROJECT created by Kara Walker, in conversation with Eungie Joo, as an alternative space for artists, writers, curators, and others interested in creative work that extends beyond the commercial spaces of galleries, museums, and publications. Walker opened her studio to give artists of color a space to express their work and to collaborate across multiple disciplines and boundaries.
