Over the weekend, October 30th to be more precise, Deanna Templeton opened up a new exhibition at Paul Kopeikin Gallery in Los Angeles. “Scratch My Name On Your Arm” explores the female personality of America, solely defining what it means to be a girl in the world today with a series of photographs of autographed girls, with words and names scrawled across various parts of their often bikini-clad bodies. The subjects, sometimes proudly displaying their new “body art,” offer a glimpse into a unique world that Templeton has captured here.
The exhibition runs from October 30th until December 18th. And, since you already missed the first opening, there will be a mega-bonus on November 6th, including a 130-page hardcover catalog of the work that will be available. Check out some photos of the exhibition and opening below.
