SKIN IN THE GAME presents seminal prototypes from the personal archives of internationally acclaimed artists, dating back to the 1970s and crossing over into the present. The exhibits include experiments never previously shown, from paintings to sculptures, to banners, video performances, photographs, collages, drawings, books, and concept notes. The works focus on that moment of professional and existential emancipation when these artists threw their skin in the game, and gave their all to art. These prototypes become the generative organs of an ongoing body of work, a series of unfinished inquiries that return, and are explored, at different moments throughout a lifetime. Ruth Buchanan, Otobong Nkanga, Collier Schorr, and Joëlle Tuerlinckx are complimenting early prototypes with new productions for this exhibition. A choreography devised in collaboration with Joëlle Tuerlinckx takes over remnants of the previous exhibition at KW on the 3rd floor, exploring not only the constructive dialogue between artists and their works but also conditions of “neighborly dislike”.
