Carroll Dunham Prints: A Survey opening at University Art Museum at SUNY-Albany

The Addison may be closed for renovation, but there is still an opportunity to see artwork from our collection!

Our traveling exhibition Carroll Dunham Prints: A Survey, will be opening at its third and final venue on Tuesday, February 2nd at the University Art Museum at SUNY-Albany, NY. The show is comprised of over one hundred prints from the Addison's collection of the artist's work spanning the 1980s until the present.

I was fortunate enough to travel to Albany a couple of weeks ago to help with the unpacking and condition checking of the objects. The University Art Museum's elegant exhibition space is considerably different from the Addison's galleries in that you can stand in the middle of it and view almost the entire show from one viewpoint. You can compare objects of different types and periods easily and it makes quite an impact on the viewer.

This is a venue that is certainly worth visiting! We, and the staff at the University Art Museum, hope to see you there!
