There are two shows opening tomorrow (Friday) at UAlbany’s University Art Museum. A Tisket, A Tasket showcases Kate Gilmore’s video installations (pictured is a frame grab from 2010’s Pot, Kettle, Black). The gallery notes describe her mission: “As the sole protagonist in her performative videos, Kate Gilmore struggles to overcome absurd and manufactured challenges—climbing out of holes, jumping rope in heels, squeezing out of tight spots. [She] uses her body to explore physical limits and social norms.”
Suzanne McClelland: Furtive Gesture_CEDEpart2 is also opening tomorrow, and runs concurrently with the Gilmore show. According to the notes, McClelland’s work gives “visual form to the language and gestures that influence political and social exchange.”
Suzanne McClelland: Furtive Gesture_CEDEpart2 and Kate Gilmore: A Tisket, A Tasket open tomorrow (Friday, Oct. 18) with an artist talk at 5 PM and a reception from 6 to 8 PM, and will run through Dec. 14 at the University Art Museum (University at Albany, 1400 Washington Ave., Albany).
