“Tattoo. Storie sulla pelle”
July 5 - November 17
“Tattoo. Storie sulla pelle” (which means “Tattoo. Stories on the skin”) is the new exhibition that you can see in at the M9 Museum.
The aim of of the exhibition is to explore the planetary and creative dimension of tattoos in different dimensions, from anthropological to historical, from artistic to social.
Conceived as a real journey through time: you will see the images of tattoos found on mummies as well as the works of contemporary tattooists, from the French Tin Tin to Yoshihito Nakano, aka Horiyoshi III, still considered one of the most famous masters of Japanese tattoo art.
The visitors will understand that tattoos became an instrument of political struggle, of feminist claims, of rewriting classical sculptural art.
The exhibition is accompanied by the images of Tattoo off, a photographic exhibition curated by Massimiliano Maxx Testa of the Venezia International Tattoo Convention: he will try to make people understand how tattoos have broken the patterns and prejudices in which they have been locked up for a long time, succeeding in transforming themselves into a collective language.
