Exhibition: BODY EMBELLISHMENT
Where: The Mint Museum, Charlotte NC
When: Through September 6 2015
“Body Embellishment explores the most innovative artistic expression in the 21st-century international arenas of body extension, augmentation, and modification. The five areas of focus are jewelry, tattoos, nail arts, millinery, and fashion.
The juxtaposition of these varied forms, deriving from popular culture as well as the worlds of art, craft, and design, bring to light the visual and conceptual parallels among them.”
