Closing Reception for “Nailed” at Subliminal Projects ~ Oct. 6

Posted by

SUBLIMINAL PROJECTS is having a closing reception for Nailed, a group exhibition featuring artwork by Liz Baca, Gabriella Davi-Khorasanee, Dzine, Igor Jovic, Simone Lueck, Chris Mosier, Kai Regan, Dominique Renee, Jamel Shabazz, Mickalene Thomas, Catherine Wong, and Monika Zbijowska.

Nailed is inspired by the 2011 book titled Nailed: The History of Nail Culture and Dzine, published by Standard Press and Damiani. Photographers from around the world were commissioned to document nail artists, clientele, and salon owners in their respective cities. The photographs that best represent the diversity of this personal and customized form of expression are presented in the publication, along with a historical account of the history of nail art and adornment from the Ming Dynasty in China to the present. The project outlines the trends and techniques that have emerged with time and the relationships nail art culture fosters, both inside and outside salon walls.
