September 15 through December 13, 2009
Featuring work by Radcliffe Bailey, Olaf Breuning, Anna Conway, Mark Essen, Adam Frelin, Valerie Hegarty, David Herbert, Emre Hüner, Matt Leines, and Cameron Martin.
Set against the larger context of travel and discovery, this group exhibition considers the potentialities and perils of navigating unfamiliar waters. Transcending geographic exploration, these artists propose an imagined world of discovery and adventure that often parallels the artistic process itself. They deploy various media including photography, painting, drawing, installation, sculpture, film and video games in artwork that is rife with possibility, fraught with anxiety, and ultimately, tempered by absurdity. Such are the results of beginning any new venture without a map.
Held in conjunction with the Hudson-Fulton-Champlain Quadricentennial and the University at Albany 2009 theme semester: The Hudson River: Mount Marcy to Manhattan.
