Skin in the game

You like getting naked and you like art? Then you need to make a note in your diary now for Stuart Ringholt’s nude tours of Sydney's MCA exhibitions celebrating the opening of their new extensions. But be warned. Artist Ringholt specialises in putting himself in compromising situations so that his audiences confront fear. His approach has been inspired by his own long illness and drug problems as he worked through “feelings of embarrassment and low self-esteem.” Ringholt’s performance is called Preceded by a tour of the show by artist Stuart Ringholt 6-8pm (the artist will be naked. Those who wish to join the tour must also be naked. Adults only). So don't say you weren’t warned.
