Tang at Home Studio: What a View!
Time: 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM
Tang Teaching Museum Tang Teaching Museum: Join us Saturday, February 27, at 11:00 AM, for Tang at Home Studio: What a View! Photographer Danielle St. Laurent created a series of family portraits during the pandemic in which families are separated by windows. We will look at Laurent’s photographs from the exhibition Pandemic and Protest, and think about how we can find creative ways to connect with others. Take a walk in your neighborhood or look out your window and gather ideas about what windows can reveal and represent to you. What stories can you imagine from your window? From rainbows to positive messages like “Stronger Together,” we will make our own paper-based windows from which we can look out at the world, and others can look at us. Hosted by Sunny Ra, The Laurie M. Tisch Educator for K-12 and Community Programs, and her team of Skidmore student interns, these sessions are geared toward children ages 5 to 12 accompanied by a parent or guardian. This hour-long live session will focus on exploring and sharing our thoughts about the artwork, learning more about the artist and then making our own inspired work! Before Saturday’s live event, check out these high-definition images of the photographs.Tang at Home Studios are free, however, registration is required and space is limited. Register for this event.Once you register, you will receive confirmation, project instructions, and a Zoom link. Registration will close once the event reaches capacity.

Race at Work: How American Managers made white lives matter more
Time: 6:00 PM
Virtual: Presentation by: Dr. Elizabeth EschAssociate Professor, American Studies, University of Kansas In the history of the United States employers and mangers have been key architects of racial segregation and the ideologies that justified it. Arguments about the "racial suitability" of different people for certain kinds of work and tasks created a "science" that has shaped what we believe and learn about the organization of work and the management of workplaces. Movements to challenge racism have focused on the role of the state and the use of laws to exclude African American and immigrant workers from access to rights and protection. But what about the place where most people spend more than one-third of their time: at work? How has the workplace been a site of knowledge-creation through the very organization of work and production? How do ideas that are applied "at work" relate to broader social problems like housing discrimination, racist university admissions, and gendered-arguments for who deserves jobs?Click here to register Co-sponsored by Management & Business, International Affairs, American Studies, and Black Studies

Time: 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM
Tang Teaching Museum Tang Teaching Museum: Join us for the fourth annual Winter/Miller Lecture on Thursday, March 11, at 7:00 PM, featuring acclaimed artist Nick Cave.Cave’s appearance at the Tang Teaching Museum is by invitation from Nathan Bloom ’21, an anthropology major. He holds the prestigious 2020-21 Eleanor Linder Winter ’43 Internship, a one-year pre-professional program in museum work for Skidmore students. In this role, Bloom is charged with the research, planning, and coordination of the annual Winter/Miller Lecture.The Winter/Miller Lecture is made possible through a generous gift by the family of Eleanor Linder Winter ’43. The inaugural Winter/Miller lecture was delivered in 2018 by artist Nicole Eisenman. Chris Ware delivered the second annual lecture in 2019. Wangechi Mutu gave the third annual lecture in 2020.This online event is free and open to the public. Register via Zoom.About Nick CaveNick Cave (b. 1959, Fulton, MO; lives and works in Chicago, IL) is an artist, educator and foremost a messenger, working between the visual and performing arts through a wide range of mediums including sculpture, installation, video, sound and performance. Cave is well known for his Soundsuits, sculptural forms based on the scale of his body, initially created in direct response to the police beating of Rodney King in 1991. Soundsuits camouflage the body, masking and creating a second skin that conceals race, gender and class, forcing the viewer to look without judgment. They serve as a visual embodiment of social justice that represent both brutality and empowerment.Throughout his practice, Cave has created spaces of memorial through combining found historical objects with contemporary dialogues on gun violence and death, underscoring the anxiety of severe trauma brought on by catastrophic loss. The figure remains central as Cave casts his own body in bronze, an extension of the performative work so critical to his oeuvre. Cave reminds us, however, that while there may be despair, there remains space for hope and renewal. From dismembered body parts stem delicate metal flowers, affirming the potential of new growth. Cave encourages a profound and compassionate analysis of violence and its effects as the path towards an ultimate metamorphosis. While Cave’s works are rooted in our current societal moment, when progress on issues of global warming, racism and gun violence (both at the hands of citizens and law enforcement) seem maddeningly stalled, he asks how we may reposition ourselves to recognize the issues, come together on a global scale, instigate change, and ultimately, heal.Link: https://tang.skidmore.edu/calendar/1402-winter-miller-lecture-nick-cave

Time: 12:00 PM to 2:00 PM
Tang Teaching Museum Tang Teaching Museum: Join us on Friday, March 12, at 12:00 PM, for a Dunkerley Dialogue with artist Kay Rosen, poet Forrest Gander, and Skidmore professor April Bernard. Register via Zoom.Dunkerley Dialogues are made possible by a generous gift from Michele Dunkerley ’80.About the SpeakersKay Rosen was born in 1943 in Corpus Christi, Texas and earned a B.A. from Tulane University in Linguistics, Spanish, and French before attending graduate school at Northwestern University, studying Linguistics and Spanish. Language highly informs Rosen’s work as a painter, and her works typically feature colorful blocks of text subverted by scale, spacing, or compositional arrangement. She is a three-time recipient of the National Endowment for the Arts Visual Arts Grant and is a former professor at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, where she taught for twenty-four years. Rosen’s work has been shown recently at solo exhibitions including atOsmos Station, Stamford, New York (2019); Alexander Gray Associates, NewYork City (2018); Lora Reynolds Gallery, Austin, Texas (2017); Helga Maria Klosterfelde Edition, Berlin, Germany (2017); and Barbara Krakow Gallery, Boston, Massachusetts (2017).Poet Forrest Gander earned degrees in both geology and English literature, abackground that now strongly informs his work. His Pulitzer-prize winning collection of poetry, Be With (2019), draws from his background traveling across North America with the late poet CD Wright, where he spent time in California, Mexico, Arkansas, and Rhode Island. Gander’s work is often characterized as “ecopoetry”, and he has taught on the subject matter at Providence College, Harvard University, and now Brown University where he serves as the The Adele Kellenberg Seaver Professor of Literary Arts and Comparative Literature. Gander is also a prolific translator, most recently translating the works of Gozo Yoshimasu, Alfonso D'Aquino, and Pablo Neruda.April Bernard is a poet, novelist, and essayist. Her most recent books are Brawl & Jag (poems) and Miss Fuller, a novel. Her previous books of poems are Romanticism, Swan Electric, Psalms, and Blackbird Bye Bye. Bernard is a regular contributor to The New York Review of Books and other journals, is Professor of English and Director of Creative Writing at Skidmore College, and also teaches in the Bennington College MFA Writing Seminars.

Residing at the intersection of mathematics, marine biology, handicraft, and community art practice, the project responds to the environmental crisis of global warming and the escalating problem of oceanic plastic trash by highlighting not only the damage humans do to earth’s ecology, but also our power for positive action. The Wertheims’ Crochet Coral Reef collection has been exhibited worldwide, including at the 2019 Venice Biennale, Andy Warhol Museum (Pittsburgh), Hayward Gallery (London), Science Gallery (Dublin), and the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History (Washington, DC). The project also encompasses a community-art program in which more than 10,000 people around the world have participated in making more than 40 locally based Satellite Reefs—in New York, Chicago, Melbourne, Ireland, Latvia, UAE, and elsewhere. The Saratoga Springs Satellite Reef is the latest addition to this ever-evolving wooly archipelago.About the ArtistsMargaret Wertheim is a science writer, artist, and author of books on the cultural history of physics. Christine Wertheim is an experimental poet, performer, artist, and writer, and a faculty member at the California Institute of the Arts. Margaret and Christine conduct the Crochet Coral Reef project through their Los Angeles–based practice, the Institute For Figuring, which is dedicated to “the poetic dimensions of science and mathematics.” The IFF is at once an art endeavor and a framework for innovative public science engagement.

Crocheting Corals: Workshop for the Saratoga Springs Satellite Reef
Time: 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM
Tang Teaching Museum Tang Teaching Museum: Join us Tuesday at 7:00 PM, for a workshop and craft circle to crochet hyperbolic corals for the Saratoga Springs Satellite Reef, part of the worldwide Crochet Coral Reef project by Christine and Margaret Wertheim and the Institute For Figuring. Your corals will be assembled together to form the Saratoga Springs Satellite Reef, which will be exhibited at the Museum as part of Radical Fiber: Threads Connecting Art and Science, opening in early 2022.Hosted by Associate Curator Rebecca McNamara, this program introduces the Saratoga Springs Satellite Reef and includes a virtual craft circle. Crochet instructors will lead beginners in the single crochet stitch, which is all you need to make your very own coral! We will also learn from one another about our experiences with fiber craft, underwater corals, and other topics.If you’re ready to crochet, bring yarn and a crochet hook, or come to learn more about the project. If you’re a savvy fiber crafter, use whatever’s in your stash! If you’re a beginner, we recommend medium-weight (4) yarn and a 5.5mm (or I/9) crochet hook.Open to everyone, and all skill levels welcome!Download the Institute for Figuring’s brochure How to Crochet Hyperbolic Corals.Register via Zoom.Skidmore students: We are assembling crochet kits (which includes a hook and yarn) and will have them available when you return to campus. Check back for details.About the Crochet Coral ReefThe Crochet Coral Reef is project created by sisters Christine Wertheim and Margaret Wertheim of the Institute For Figuring. Residing at the intersection of mathematics, marine biology, handicraft, and community art practice, the project responds to the environmental crisis of global warming and the escalating problem of oceanic plastic trash by highlighting not only the damage humans do to earth’s ecology, but also our power for positive action. The Wertheims’ Crochet Coral Reef collection has been exhibited worldwide, including at the 2019 Venice Biennale, Andy Warhol Museum (Pittsburgh), Hayward Gallery (London), Science Gallery (Dublin), and the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History (Washington, DC). The project also encompasses a community-art program in which more than 10,000 people around the world have participated in making more than 40 locally based Satellite Reefs—in New York, Chicago, Melbourne, Ireland, Latvia, UAE, and elsewhere. The Saratoga Springs Satellite Reef is the latest addition to this ever-evolving wooly archipelago.About the ArtistsMargaret Wertheim is a science writer, artist, and author of books on the cultural history of physics. Christine Wertheim is an experimental poet, performer, artist, and writer, and a faculty member at the California Institute of the Arts. Margaret and Christine conduct the Crochet Coral Reef project through their Los Angeles–based practice, the Institute For Figuring, which is dedicated to “the poetic dimensions of science and mathematics.” The IFF is at once an art endeavor and a framework for innovative public science engagement.

Whole Grain: On Collaboration
Time: 8:30 PM to 9:30 PM
Tang Teaching Museum Tang Teaching Museum: Join us on Tuesday, April 20, at 8:30 PM, for an outdoor screening of four short experimental films and videos born out of collaboration. This program of works features collaborations between filmmakers and a painter, a multimedia artist, a musician, and an engineering research center.Superdyke Meets Madame X (dirs. Max Almy & Barbara Hammer, 1975, US, 21 min., video)Rhythm in Light (dirs. Mary Ellen Bute, Ted Nemeth, & Melville Webber, 1934, US, 5 min., video)Warm Objects (dir. Peggy Ahwesh, 2007, US, 6 min., video)Emaki/Light (dir. Takashi Makino, 2011, Japan, 16 min., video)About Whole GrainThe Tang Teaching Museum’s series Whole Grain explores classic and contemporary work in experimental film and video.Whole Grain is programmed by Assistant Director for Engagement, Tom Yoshikami. All events are free and open to the public.About the FilmsSuperdyke Meets Madame X (dirs. Max Almy & Barbara Hammer, 1975, US, 21 min., video)Winner of the Louise Riskin Prize at the 1976 San Francisco Art Festival, Superdyke Meets Madame X documents Barbara Hammer’s relationship with Max Almy on a reel-to-reel ¾” videotape recorder and microphone. This was Hammer’s first foray into recording with the Sony Portapak and was produced as part of a skill swap with Almy.Rhythm in Light (dirs. Mary Ellen Bute, Ted Nemeth, & Melville Webber, 1934, US, 5 min., video)Bute uses visual materials as a musician uses sound. Mass and line and brilliant arabesques from the inexhaustible imagination of the artist perform a dance to the strains of Edvard Grieg’s music. The visual and aural materials are related both structurally and rhythmically - a mathematical system being used to combine the two means of expression.Warm Objects (dir. Peggy Ahwesh, 2007, US, 6 min., video)Warm Objects was produced in close collaboration with the engineering research center MIRTHE (Mid-InfraRed Technologies for Health and the Environment), an organization dedicated to the development of optical trace gas sensing systems. Utilizing MIRTHE’s imaging technology, scenes of everyday incidents are transformed by infrared photography into glimpses of our world through an alien lens. Two insertions of on-screen text betray Ahwesh’s ominous implications. The first is a meditation on Rudyard Kipling’s oft-quoted “truth is the first casualty of war,” while the second takes the form of a hastily crafted e-mail, suggesting that its author has become withdrawn and pessimistic out of fear of some pending disaster. Warm Objects is a portrait of the world in uncertain and paranoid times.Emaki/Light (dir. Takashi Makino, 2011, Japan, 16 min., video)Emaki is a Japanese traditional narrative form in picture and text created during the 11th to 16th century. Emaki/Light is a collaboration between filmmaker Takashi Makino and painter/filmmaker Takashi Ishida. Ishida’s interests are live-picture and the process of paint, and Makino’s interest is to make a new image with extremely high speed random images. With Makino’s skills in using the telecine process, Ishida’s painted lines are rolled and scrolled, and become “the living line.” The film is maybe a chance, or maybe it is a fight. Perhaps, this film will show you both elements.Links: https://tang.skidmore.edu/calendar/1406-whole-grain-on-collaboration

Whole Grain: The Inheritance
Time: 8:30 PM to 10:30 PM
Tang Teaching Museum Tang Wedge (outside): Join us on Tuesday, April 27, at 8:30 PM, for an outdoor screening of Ephraim Asili’s acclaimed debut feature The Inheritance (2020, US, 100 min., digital transfer from 16mm). An astonishing ensemble work set almost entirely within a West Philadelphia house where a community of young, Black artists and activists form a collective. A scripted drama of characters attempting to work towards political consensus — based partly on Asili’s own experiences in a Black liberationist group — weaves with a documentary recollection of the Philadelphia liberation group MOVE, the victim of a notorious police bombing in 1985. Ceaselessly finding commonalties between politics, humor, and philosophy, with Black authors and radicals at its edges, The Inheritance is, “One of the best movies of the year. An excellent debut. Observed with warmth and playful humor, without ever losing sight of serious political purposes and the potential for poetry therein” (Sight and Sound).About Whole GrainThe Tang Teaching Museum’s Whole Grain series explores classic and contemporary work in experimental film and video. The series is programmed by Assistant Director for Engagement Tom Yoshikami.Link: https://tang.skidmore.edu/calendar/1409-whole-grain-the-inheritance

Crocheting Corals: Workshop for the Saratoga Springs Satellite Reef
Time: 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM
Tang Teaching Museum Tang Teaching Museum: Join us Tuesday at 7:00 PM, for a workshop and craft circle to crochet hyperbolic corals for the Saratoga Springs Satellite Reef, part of the worldwide Crochet Coral Reef project by Christine and Margaret Wertheim and the Institute For Figuring. Your corals will be assembled together to form the Saratoga Springs Satellite Reef, which will be exhibited at the Museum as part of Radical Fiber: Threads Connecting Art and Science, opening in early 2022.Hosted by Associate Curator Rebecca McNamara, this program introduces the Saratoga Springs Satellite Reef and includes a virtual craft circle. Crochet instructors will lead beginners in the single crochet stitch, which is all you need to make your very own coral! We will also learn from one another about our experiences with fiber craft, underwater corals, and other topics.If you’re ready to crochet, bring yarn and a crochet hook, or come to learn more about the project. If you’re a savvy fiber crafter, use whatever’s in your stash! If you’re a beginner, we recommend medium-weight (4) yarn and a 5.5mm (or I/9) crochet hook.Open to everyone, and all skill levels welcome!Download the Institute for Figuring’s brochure How to Crochet Hyperbolic Corals.Register via Zoom.Skidmore students: We are assembling crochet kits (which includes a hook and yarn) and will have them available when you return to campus. Check back for details.About the Crochet Coral ReefThe Crochet Coral Reef is project created by sisters Christine Wertheim and Margaret Wertheim of the Institute For Figuring. Residing at the intersection of mathematics, marine biology, handicraft, and community art practice, the project responds to the environmental crisis of global warming and the escalating problem of oceanic plastic trash by highlighting not only the damage humans do to earth’s ecology, but also our power for positive action. The Wertheims’ Crochet Coral Reef collection has been exhibited worldwide, including at the 2019 Venice Biennale, Andy Warhol Museum (Pittsburgh), Hayward Gallery (London), Science Gallery (Dublin), and the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History (Washington, DC). The project also encompasses a community-art program in which more than 10,000 people around the world have participated in making more than 40 locally based Satellite Reefs—in New York, Chicago, Melbourne, Ireland, Latvia, UAE, and elsewhere. The Saratoga Springs Satellite Reef is the latest addition to this ever-evolving wooly archipelago.About the ArtistsMargaret Wertheim is a science writer, artist, and author of books on the cultural history of physics. Christine Wertheim is an experimental poet, performer, artist, and writer, and a faculty member at the California Institute of the Arts. Margaret and Christine conduct the Crochet Coral Reef project through their Los Angeles–based practice, the Institute For Figuring, which is dedicated to “the poetic dimensions of science and mathematics.” The IFF is at once an art endeavor and a framework for innovative public science engagement.
