NAS Queer Contemporary: SKIN DEEP
Friday 19 February – Sunday 7 March
SKIN DEEP is an interactive exhibition that presents intimate and personal stories of LGBTQI+ people through their tattooed bodies and stories, celebrating diversity, defiance and body art. SKIN DEEP is curated by the National Art School Executive Producer Terese Casu, and is made up of several unique components – presented as one integrated audience experience or as separate experiences. LGBTQI+ community participation is central to all components of SKIN DEEP – as narrators, models, storytellers and performers.
Celebrated Sydney fashion photographer, Waded, brings her skills of cutting edge fashion portraiture, to capture authentic but highly styled portraits of diverse tattooed bodies that tell unique stories through their body art.
Woven through the photographic exhibition will include historical images and the background of LGBTQI+ tattooed symbols used over last century to convey political messages or to reveal ones identity. The LGBTQI+ community are invited to contribute to the Exhibition through an interactive story wall of images and stories about their first tattoo.
