And All You Suck In Is Oil

28 May to 4 September 2011

Tang Teaching Museum at Skidmore College, Saratoga Springs, NY

Installation view featuring black text that reads 'And All You Suck In Is Oil' next to a long, vertical orange plank with a human-looking figure resting against the wall and five, small artworks with red circles in the center.

And All You Suck In Is Oil  presented a small selection of artwork by artists Rita Ackermann, Kim Jones, and Marlene McCarty that explore issues of violence and desire.


Using absurdist elements and at times humor, the works featured alluded to a violence that is neither explicit nor straightforward — rather a mysterious, anxious turbulence that seems to simmer below their surfaces.

The exhibition featured works from the Tang Museum Collection and on extended loan and took its title from the series of prints by McCarty on display.

Artists: Rita Ackermann, Kim Jones, Marlene McCarty
