According to the exhibition press release, Skin Fruit aims to “evoke the tensions between exterior and interior, between what we see and what we consume.” It posits a corporeal theme garnered by heavy doses of sensuality, sexuality, and multitudinous examinations of the flesh. But is this really what Skin Fruit does? On a whole, I would argue otherwise. What the exhibition does succeed at is generating a buzz about contemporary art, the practice and philosophy of collecting, the art market and the museum as paradox: one part commercial venue, the other part educational institution. As a result, the New Museum has some considerable (re)thinking to do. Everyone learns from their mistakes. Hopefully this beacon of the Bowery is no exception to the rule.
