Provocative abstract exhibit to open at Skidmore
DateSeptember 16, 2010
“The Jewel Thief,” a new exhibition opening Saturday at the Tang Teaching Museum and Art Gallery at Skidmore College, brings together abstract works by more than 60 artists, with the intention of provoking new ways to experience and think about abstract art.
From the overlooking Illumination Gallery, made possible by a recent gift from Laurie M. Tisch Illumination Fund, visitors can stand on another artwork, an installa
tion by London-based artist Richard Woods. His printed floor boards also make a stage for modernist-inspired sculpture by Rico Gatson and a series of 1960s weavings from the Tang’s collection.
