Second Skin at Orange Door

September 22, 2017 – September 20, 2018

Second Skin proposes that an artwork’s surface is an interface (to use a digital metaphor) or a membrane (to use a biological one) created to express a shared, social identity. Bringing together artworks in a range of media from 1970 through 2017, including costumes, flags, paint on canvas and digital illusions, Second Skin shows how virtual selfhood is communicated and manifest in material, real time and place.

Artists included: Daniel Canogar, Jim Campbell, Nick Cave, Harold Cohen, Guillermo Galindo, John Gerrard, Matilde Pérez, Jon Rafman, Elias Sime, and Kenneth Young.
