SARATOGA SPRINGS — The Frances Young Tang Teaching Museum and Art Gallery at Skidmore College announces the fourth exhibition in a series that invites an artist to reimagine a community space in the Museum.

Lauren Kelley: Location Scouting, opens Oct. 16 and runs for two years. Lauren Kelley, an artist and curator, will reshape the Tang’s mezzanine by combining meditations on travel with snapshots of everyday life in her drawings, sculpture, and stop-motion animation videos. Using plasticine, toys, and souvenirs, Kelley’s videos conjure worlds that are malleable and unfixed, inhabited by robust protagonists whose quirks stem from efforts to correct the asymmetrical relationships they encounter. Accentuating the off-kilter, Location Scouting speaks to the shifts and rifts inherent in navigating today’s post-pandemic landscape. 

The installation is also the setting for a series of transformations over time, created in collaboration with sculptor Margarita Cabrera, animator Jennifer Levonian, and performance artist Autumn Knight. Each guest artist’s interest in place, narrative, and audience will inform the direction of a new stop-motion animation produced collaboratively by Kelley and Skidmore College students to be screened during the last months of the show in 2023. 

Lauren Kelley: Location Scouting is organized by Rachel Seligman, Assistant Director for Curatorial Affairs and Malloy Curator, in collaboration with the artist and is supported by the Friends of the Tang. 

The Tang Teaching Museum is located on the campus of Skidmore College. Museum hours: Thursday to Sunday, noon to 5 p.m., with extended hours until 9 p.m. Thursdays. For the latest visitor guidelines, visit www.tang.skidmore.edu
