The Frances Young Tang Teaching Museum and Art Gallery at Skidmore College: I was a double
February 2015 – June 2015
I was a double was curated by the Tang’s Ian Berry and composer David Lang. First presented at the Tang Teaching Museum from July 5, 2014 through January 4, 2015, the exhibition explores musical interpretations of artworks and the intersection of music and the fine arts more broadly. For this version of the exhibition, Turner Prize-nominee Ciara Philips created a new work based on her exhibition at London’s Tate Modern.
The Frances Young Tang Teaching Museum and Art Gallery at Skidmore College opened in October 2000. Designed by architect Antoine Predock, the 39,000-square-foot building is sited dramatically on Skidmore’s scenic Saratoga Springs, New York campus. The Tang invites curiosity and collaborative learning through active engagement with ideas, artworks, and exhibitions. Programming tailored to foster formative connections between contemporary art and students of all ages is central. Critical to this end are direct experiential opportunities for Skidmore students to participate in integral aspects of museum practice.
