In March 2011, a group of people volunteered to be part of a contemporary art project. The project would involve some of the biggest names in the art world and would ask serious questions about what, exactly, constitutes art? Directed by Ryan Hope, Skin is an examination of tattoo culture as high art and a film that tests the boundaries of the medium and the human body. The film features contributions from notable artists such as Damien Hirst, Jeff Koons and Raymond Pettibon, in association with Dasha Zhukova’s Garage Magazine. Now thanks to Christie’s and W Hotels the entire 40 minuet artistic endeavor can be viewed online.
