Slow Curve gallery
The Slow Curve exhibition (and dance) space

Skidmore dancers have prepared “a physical dialogue” as an innovative way to engage with the colorful geometric shapes of the Ellsworth Kelly: Slow Curve exhibition. Their event, called “The Curve Effect,” takes place Thursday, Aug. 24, at the Hyde Collection, 161 Warren St., Glens Falls, N.Y. Performances are slated for 6:15, 6:50 and 7:30 p.m. in the Charles R. Wood Gallery, with refreshments available in the lobby between 6 and 8 p.m. Admission is free for Hyde members and the Skidmore community; $12 for others. Advance reservations are required: call Kayla at 518-792-1761, ext. 310, or email  

Choreographed by Skidmore faculty members Debra Fernandez and Jason Ohlberg and performed by faculty member Christin Williams and new grad Elise Mumford ’17, the performances will explore shifting kinetic viewpoints, as dancers frame and are framed by the 60-plus prints in the gallery and as they apply distinct new spins on Kelly’s iconic curvilinear works.
