Day After Day: The Diaristic Impulse

by The Staff on January 31, 2013


The artists in the new show opening Tuesday at UAlbany’s University Art Museum will address the human drive to keep a daily record of their life, work, activities—the “diaristic impulse.”

According to the exhibit notes, the works here are often “confessional in tone, and presented in a range of media from journals and sketchbooks to video and sound recordings; these artists draw upon self-imposed rituals, secret narratives, and personal longings to give tangible form to fleeting ideas.”

The artists with work in this show will include Guy Ben-Ner, Simon Evans, Ray Hamilton, Byron Kim, Meridith McNeal, Laurel Nakadate, David Shapiro, Rirkrit Tiravanija, Harvey Tulcensky, and Martin Wilner. Pictured is Evans’ Diagram of Love.

Day After Day: The Diaristic Impulse opens Tuesday (Feb. 5) and will run through April 6 at the University Art Museum (University at Albany, 1400 Washington Ave., Albany). There will be a reception on Feb. 12 from 5 to 7 PM. For more info, call 442-4035.
