Skin Website

Place, race, religion, fragility, identity and sexuality are all probed through physical and conceptual ideas of skin. This exhibition brings together works by Canadian and international artists whose work explore notions of skin in paint, print, sculpture and performance. Opening a dialogue that goes beyond sex and figure, the artworks included in this exhibition help articulate the seduction of surface.
