It is with great pleasure that I can announce two lectures (March 6 & 7) at the new Mata Hoata Tattoo Gallery (17 Fontanka) in Saint Petersburg, Russia with my host and friend Dmitry Babakhin! Although the seating list is full, the gallery opens at 3pm each day where you can view a new photo exhibition on Indigenous tattooing and related objects of tattoo culture. We will hold book signing events starting around 3:30pm each day before the lectures @ 5:00pm.
These events correspond with the March 2 public opening of the new TATTOO exhibition in Moscow at the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts. Special events related to this amazing exhibition (the first of its kind in Russia) are coming soon and we (Colin Dale, Dmitry Babakhin) will be there too!
I gave my first academic paper in Vladivostok in 1998 and monitored elections in Siberia in 2000, so it’s about time to return to The Motherland!
