I don’t know you like that: The Bodywork of Hospitality at Bemis Center, New York

Adham Faramawy presents 'Skin Flicks', 2019.
Developed for Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts by 2019-2021 Curator-in-Residence Sylvie Fortin, the ambitious group exhibition brings together the works of 18 contemporary artists to explore corporeal hospitality. Hospitality is usually considered a philosophical concept with juridical implications, an ethical concern, or a social/political practice. This group exhibition shifts the focus to consider the stealth work of hospitality on our conceptual, physical, political, and historical understanding of bodies.
