This Thursday through Sunday, acclaimed tattoo artist turned fine artist, Scott Campbell, will serve as both artist and tattoo artist in residence at Whole Glory, a one-man installation and performance at MILK Gallery. The installation includes a 50-foot-long painting by him, at the center of which is a small hole, about four feet off the ground, with a chair in front of it. On a first-come-first-served basis, members of the public who so dare are invited to seat themselves in the chair for up to 90 minutes, their bare arm through the hole, while from the other side of the wall, Mr. Campbell tattoos on them whatever rendering he sees fit, knowing nothing about the subjects — even what they look like — and with zero input from them.
Whole Glory will be open to the public at from November 12-15 at the Milk Gallery, 450 West 15th Street. A limited number of people will be selected each day via an in-person lottery. Sign-up will be in the Gallery 9 AM to approx. 2:30 PM. Drawings will take place at 10 AM and 3 PM.Visit the Website
