The University Art Museum’s upcoming exhibition Affinities and Outliers: Highlights from the University at Albany Fine Art Collections features over two hundred art works by fifty artists spanning the mid-twentieth century till today. The exhibition encompasses drawing, painting, photography, prints, and sculpture by established as well as less recognized artists. It highlights notable examples of art historical movements including the Harlem Renaissance, Abstract Expressionism, Pop, Minimalism, Conceptual Art, the Bay Area Figurative Movement, Pictorialism, and the Pictures Generation. It features such noted figures as Vito Acconci, Romare Bearden, Richard Diebenkorn, Audrey Flack, Jacob Lawrence, Mary Ellen Mark, Dona Nelson, Louise Nevelson, Robert Rauschenberg, and Andy Warhol as well as works by artistic outliers including Carroll Cloar, Hilda Katz, and Selina Trieff. By creating visual conversations between iconic and lesser-known artists, the exhibition seeks to challenge established timelines and affinities by emphasizing a shared sensibility among artists working across time and media.
