SKIN, a trailblazing exhibition that examines the work of 36 contemporary artists from established to emerging– who are expanding the ongoing dialogue about race and identity, while challenging the very definition of skin color. Debuting at Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs’ Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery (LAMAG) this February, the timely, topical and thought-provoking exhibition is designed to build a greater understanding of racial relations and breakdown negative stereotypes. With works by notable artists such as Kara Walker, Nery Gabriel Lemus and Ken Gonzalez Day, the show promises to be a visual feast with its size and scale, mixed media artworks and powerful content. The exhibition runs from February 7 to April 17, 2016 at LAMAG (4800 Hollywood Blvd.), one of LA’s most dynamic cultural destinations and the country’s last remaining municipal art gallery (visit www.lamag.org).

presents thThe Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery presents a  powerful and provocative exhibition SKIN, addressing issues that have been increasingly prominent since President Obama’s election, which is symbolic of both strides in race relations, as well as ruptures in the “skin” that binds us. During the last year, racially-charged events in Ferguson, Baltimore, Cleveland, Chicago, New York City, Prairie View, Charleston, Oakland, and Southern California have also revealed chasms in the issues of race and identity and have subsequently, become a growing part of the national dialogue. Artists in Los Angeles and throughout the country have been galvanized by these events and SKIN’s mission is to use art as a vehicle to bring this important conversation to the fore.

Featured Artists in the exhibition include Geordy Zodidat Alexis, James Berson, April Bey, Maura Brewer, Ben Caldwell, Audrey Chan, Christopher Christion, Holly Crawford, Ken Gonzalez Day, Fabian Debora, Cole James, Camella Kim, Zeal Harris, Malisa Humphrey, Farrah Karapetian, Ann Le, Nery Gabriel Lemus, Derrick Maddox, Michael Massenburg, Kathie Foley-Meyer, Larissa Nickel, Margaret Noble, Duane Paul, Linda Ravenswood, Megan Reed, Kaitlynn Redell, Bruce Richards, Bryan Rodriguez Cambana, Sandy Rodriguez, Daniel Rothman, Yoshie Sakai, Cauleen Smith, Gabriel Sosa, Holly Tempo, Kara Walker and Jessica Wimbley.
