Needled: Skin Is a Language


Needled visits the Whitney's exhibit that takes skin—metaphorically, literally, and otherwise—as its curatorial premise. Skin Is a Language includes works by some heavy-hitters from the Whitney’s permanent collection such as Catherine Opie, Ellen Gallagher, Félix González-Torres, Eva Hesse, Roni Horn, and Jasper Johns, and the pieces included in the show all touch on the ideas that help inform the significance of skin as a canvas.
