There is nothing so fundamental and deep-rooted in our psyche as a bum: evolution has dictated that we cannot escape its profound attraction
Throughout art history, as a representation of strength or voyeuristic eroticism; from Michelangelo's frescoes, Velasquez’s 'Rokeby Venus’ to Vallotton’s notorious ‘Study of Buttocks’, bums have been a universal and accepted subject, but rarely have art shows dedicated themselves to the subject alone.
Participating artists: Aggtelek, Sports Banger, Markus Birdman, Jeremy Deller, Maja Djordjevic, Paul Kindersley, Dion Kitson, MC Llamas, Sarah Maple, Elizabeth Prentis, Ally Rosenberg, Sol Golden Sato, Stuart Semple, David Shrigley, Max Siedentopf, Xu Yang
Baker & Borowski founded SKIP gallery on the principle of non-elitism and universal accessibility, while also collaborating with mischievous and witty artists. ‘Bums’ exhibition is an extension of that philosophy in both subject matter and artists.
