Seeing Double at the Albany Institute

egas anaglyph albany institute

Opening this weekend at the Albany Institute of History and Art: Seeing Double: The Anaglyphs of Eric Egas.

Anaglyph? They're stereoscopic images that appear to be 3D when viewed with through special glasses.

Exhibit blurbage:

In this experiential exhibition, Egas engulfs viewers in situational modalities through the selection and placement of anaglyphs that explore human relationships with nature, the meaning of the absurd, human aggression, and aesthetic impulses. Thirty-five prints, ranging in size of about four square feet, show the range of Egas' career experimenting with the medium. Visitors will explore the exhibition with anaglyph viewers which will allow them to experience the depth and contrast of the photographs.

And, yep, 3D glasses will be provided.

The exhibit opens this Saturday (August 15) and runs through October 25.

Egas, who spends part of the year in Greenville, will be at the Albany Institute September 3 for a talk about his work. And because that's a Thursday, admission to event is free.

Comments

Another plug for the Albany Institute - the Walter Launt Palmer exhibit closes on Sunday, 8/16. So if you'd like to see some lovely work my a 19th century local artist, head on down! Bonus, it's going to be a hot weekend and the museum is air conditioned :)
