No, you go naked
"What do you mean by coaching me?" artist Kenneth Tam, wearing an orange cloth bag over his head, asks a man with an identical bag over his head. The man has just convinced Tam, who has come to participate in a life-drawing session, to be the nude model instead. Tam is hesitant but willing to brave his own discomfort, as he always is in videos like this one, which he makes with collaborators he meets via Craigslist. "Let's try our shoes," the man says. The two take off their shoes, then continue to undress, together, until Tam is ready to pose. Called I replaced your genitals with another's, the video plays in Tam's current Night Gallery show. 2276 E. 16th St., dwntwn.; through Sun., Aug. 3. (650) 384-5448, nightgallery.ca.
Tuesdays-Saturdays. Starts: June 29. Continues through Aug. 3, 2013
