'An Armory Show' is a multi-discipline project, which pays homage to 'The Armory Show' of 1913, held at the 69th Regiment Armory in New York City and presented by the Association of American Painters and Sculptors. The work presented will speak to the dynamic changes that occurred in the art world in general as a result of its occurrence, and to the history of its effect on the artistic life of the Capital Region.
A salon, an exhibition within the installation, will include the work of over 30 artists from the region, including that of RPI faculty Shawn Lawson, Larry Kagan, Nathan Meltz, Paul Miyamoto, and Bill Bergman.
The salon is set up within space created by a drywall facade that resembles a giant tank (complete with turret). It makes the gallery space feel more intimate, and the many of the works of the in the salon -- including illustrations, video, sculpture, collections of small items, one of Heather Dewey-Hagborg's DNA portraits -- prompt you to look closer. It's like of like hanging out inside someone's imagination.
The exhibit just opened this past Friday. It runs through December 15. There's an artists tour with Oatman and Ragsdale October 1 at 5 pm.
