When: Sat, Sep 5, 2015
Where: The Frances Young Tang Teaching Museum and Art Gallery at Skidmore College, 815 North Broadway, Saratoga Springs, NY 12866
Affinity Atlas charts an exploratory path across disciplines built on idiosyncratic treasures from the Tang Teaching Museum collection and punctuated with recent works by a roster of contemporary artists. Artworks, images, and objects spanning centuries and continents collide and coalesce, forging fresh connections between seemingly disparate works. An international roster of artists includes Ilit Azoulay, Michelle Grabner and Brad Killam, Camille Henrot, Vik Muiz, Michael Oatman, Sara VanDerBeek, and Hew Locke. The exhibition seeks to find affinities in unexpected juxtapositions. In so doing, it underscores the museum’s laboratory-like mission of experimentation and builds on the strengths and surprises of the Tang’s collection.

For Machine Project — The Platinum Collection, Mark Allen (Skidmore College Class of 1993) and a series of artist collaborators will generate new work responding to the campus and local community. Both a reflection and a continuation of Machine Project’s ongoing exploration of collaborative ways of working, while in residence Allen inhabits the Tang in multiple ways: the gallery is augmented with a theater and Machine Project offices, and the elevator becomes a listening station for the Field Guide to Poets of the Machine Project Region.
