Power Play

6 February to 26 April 2010

Tang Teaching Museum at Skidmore College, Saratoga Springs, NY

Co-curated with D. Ryan Lynch, Assistant Registrar

Power Play brought together works from the Tang Museum Collection that use play to challenge various power structures and our assumptions about them.

The exhibition featured works from the eighteenth to twenty-first centuries that addressed power’s complexity and its many guises, from the global scale of politics and inequality to the intimacy of sexual dynamics.

Artists: Mary Bauermeister, Nayland Blake, Salvador Dalí, Kathy Grove, John Heartfield, William Hogarth, Jane Masters, Marlene McCarty, Yasumasa Morimura, Andy Warhol.
