ART Lexington Tattoo Project Gallery Opening, UK Art Museum
January 24, 2015 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm
"The Lexington Tattoo Project is a collaboration between artists Kremena Todorova and Kurt Gohde, and poet Bianca Spriggs, whose poem The ____of the Universe: A Love Story inspired numerous residents to have their bodies tattooed with suggestive fragments of text, punctuation marks, and small design elements. A celebration of pride and place, the project has been documented by a thoughtful website, video, and a hardcover book. Now for the first time, the photographs of participants are exhibited as a gallery exhibition, spreading across one large wall of the Museum, which acts as a gathering site for those interested in how flesh, love, and ideas can come together in risky and respectful ways.
