Have you been meaning to check out all the new exhibitions at the The Frances Young Tang Teaching Museum and Art Gallery at Skidmore College? On Saturday, September 21, the Tang will be hosting its 2019 Fall Celebration, the perfect opportunity to hear from curators and spend an evening exploring the exhibits.
At 4 pm, the Tang will host a curators’ talk on a current exhibition, Ree Morton: The Plant That Heals May Also Poison. The exhibition, which was originally curated by Kate Kraczon for the Philadelphia Institute for Contemporary Art, presents some of Ree Morton’s colorful, post-minimalist work from her tragically short career. The discussion will feature Kraczon and Dayton Director Ian Berry, who organized the exhibition for the the Tang.
Afterwards, join the Fall Opening Reception and take the opportunity to wander the galleries until 7 pm during the Tang’s extended Fall Celebration hours. The reception celebrates the museum’s current exhibitions, many of which opened over the summer. Temporary exhibitions include Elevator Music 39: Bug, Beauty and Bite, Hyde Cabinet 4: A Terrible Beauty, and Serious Sparkle.
Visitors can attend the curators’ talk and opening reception for free.
