Past Exhibitions

Gangster: Moorea Hum, 2012


9 March to 22 April

This exhibit examines tattoos as a seemingly permanent art form when in reality tattoos maintain ephemeral characteristics due to the organic nature of the human body as a canvas or support. Tattoo explores the way various artists document or archive tattoos, and how they experiment with tattoo imagery and processes using archival materials and approaches. The artists are Olli Bery, Jason Fitzpatrick, Ellen Greene and Jacob Dahlstrup Jensen. Organized by the Owens Art Gallery with the Support of the Canada Council for the Arts. Curated by Nicole Sharp.
