Barrow Parke: Systems and Mythologies

August 7 – December 4, 2023; January 22 – April 3, 2024


Operating at the intersection of craft, technology, and contemporary art, Mark Barrow and Sarah Parke explore visual systems with their collaborative weaving and painting practice. Systems and Mythologies is the first solo museum exhibition for the artist duo and will showcase newly commissioned textiles and paintings, as well as site-specific wallpaper and vinyl window installations that extend their patterns throughout the space, alongside earlier series showing the arc of their fifteen-year collaboration.


Barrow Parke: Systems and Mythologies is made possible through a grant from The Coby Foundation, Ltd. Additional support for the University Art Museum Fall 2023 exhibitions and programs is provided by the Office of the President, Office of the Provost, The University at Albany Foundation, the University at Albany Alumni Association, the University Auxiliary Services at Albany, and the Robin Kanson Lewis ’70 Exhibition Endowment Fund.
