August 11:  Celebrate New Tim Davis Exhibition Catalogue with The Tang Online

SARATOGA SPRINGS — The Frances Young Tang Teaching Museum and Art Gallery at Skidmore College invites the public to an online celebration of the new publication Opener 31: Tim Davis – When We Are Dancing (I Get Ideas) at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, August 11 on the Tang Instagram account. 

The event will feature a
conversation between artist, writer, and musician Tim Davis and Rachel Seligman, the book’s editor and the Assistant Director for Curatorial Affairs and Malloy Curator at the Tang. Davis, who will be on the front porch of his upstate New York home, will also perform some original songs.

The catalogue, Opener 31: Tim Davis – When We Are Dancing (I Get Ideas), presents recent work by Davis whose sprawling oeuvre includes photography, video, drawing, installation, and sound works. Davis makes artwork that explores the intersection of humor and longing, where the ridiculous meets the sublime, and the abject aligns with the beautiful in unexpected ways. The exhibition catalogue includes a new interview with Tim Davis by Seligman, and essays by Luc Sante and Tim Davis. 

The book launch event, which is free and open to the public, will be streamed live at www.instagram.com/tangteachingmuseum. For more information, visit tang.skidmore.edu or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
