DESCRIPTION

Shelley Jackson: Skin – Exhibition Opens

Tuesday, March 01, 11:00 a.m.

Online only!

Through May 31

Shelley Jackson’s Skin—equal parts conceptual art, performance art, literature, and Internet art—literalizes many of the tropes of Web-based art, such as decentralized authorship and the networked (common) body. In 2003, Jackson posted a 2,095-word short story on the Internet and invited readers to tattoo one word from the story on their bodies. The participants, known as “words,” gradually publish the story in the world, blurring the boundaries between online and offline.
