Amanda Wachob Tattoo Session

The New Museum is teaming up with Ace Hotel New York and Ace Hotel Brooklyn for an eight-part series that animates our shared interests in discovery and commitment to artistic pursuits. The yearlong lineup will activate the hotels with co-curated pop-ups, artist conversations, screenings, and more!

This May, the New Museum Store and Ace Hotel Brooklyn are proud to present a special pop-up tattoo parlor. Featuring renowned artists Jess Chen, Gossamer Rozen, Francis Segismundo, and Amanda Wachob–whose practices incorporate tattoo–the pop-up parlor and panel discussion will take place at Ace Hotel Brooklyn.

She has done projects with the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New Museum, Museum of Arts and Design, Clyfford Still Museum, Rubin Museum of Art, Museum of Contemporary Art Denver, and Whitney Museum of American Art.
