Join us for a special opening weekend lecture in the Koret Auditorium with tattoo artist Ed Hardy as he discusses his life and the exhibition Ed Hardy: Deeper than Skin. Book signing to follow. The exhibition catalogue will be available to purchase for signing at the museum store.
Ed Hardy: Deeper than Skin is the first museum retrospective of the tattoo artist and surveys Hardy’s life in art that has as its inspiration both traditional American tattooing of the first half of the twentieth century and Japan’s ukiyo-e era culture. Paintings, drawings, prints, and three-dimensional works spanning 40 years track Hardy’s goal of elevating the tattoo from its subculture, “outsider” status to a more important visual art form.
