Skin Deeper

Artist Teri Frame’s work, which addresses human skin and the human body and their distinctive imperfections, is simultaneously beautiful and troubling, kind of like early David Cronenberg films or some of the work of director Chris Cunningham. From 6 to 9 tonight, the Urban Culture Project Space (21 East 12th Street) presents Beauty Marks, an exhibit of Frame’s digital art. She manipulates images of dermal blemishes and birthmarks into uneasy compositions of form and symmetry; the opening is accompanied by Frame’s performance piece “Beautiful People” at 7:30 p.m. — it will be videotaped and added to the exhibition, which runs through June 4. See for more information.

Fri., April 17, 6-9 p.m.; Thursdays, Saturdays, 12-5 p.m. Starts: April 17. Continues through June 4, 2009
