Artists will be in residence at Skidmore College as the 2016-17 McCormack Endowed Visiting Artist-Scholars
The Frances Young Tang Teaching Museum and Art Gallery at Skidmore College and the Office of the Dean of Special Programs are pleased to announce the 2016-17 McCormack Endowed Visiting Artist-Scholars Residency, featuring the exhibition Janine Antoni & Stephen Petronio: Entangle.
This exhibition presents three works that combine action, video, and installation. Rope Dance, On the Table, and Honey Baby explore a range of ongoing multidisciplinary collaborations, which Antoni and Petronio began more than three years ago, setting out to blur the lines between artist, dancer, choreographer, and audience. Each offering has one element in common — a wooden floor — that frames different activities understood through the body.
“The Tang explores how media and ideas intersect, so it’s inspiring to work with Janine and Stephen who make collaboration central to their practice,” said Ian Berry, the Tang Museum’s Dayton Director and curator of Entangle. “It’s particularly exciting to have them join us as guest artist-scholars, weaving their work throughout the teaching activities on campus.”
