CLARK ART INSTITUTE PRESENTS SPECIAL MOONLIT MEANDER EVENT
Williamstown, Massachusetts—On Friday, August 12 at 5 pm, the Clark Art Institute hosts Moonlit Meander, an evening-long celebration featuring art, food, live music, and more. The event begins at the Lunder Center at Stone Hill and is presented in conjunction with Tauba Auerbach and Yuji Agematsu: Meander.
The Lunder Center galleries will be open until 11 pm to provide an after-hours experience of Tauba Auerbach and Yuji Agematsu: Meander, and outdoors, the Afro-Brazilian Samba Trio will perform on the Moltz Terrace, with beer and wine available for purchase. BB’s Hot Spot’s food truck will be on-site, offering Caribbean-inspired fare from 5:30–8:30 pm. At 8:30 pm, join in a musical meander under the full moon as the Samba Trio leads everyone out to the Stone Hill pasture for s'mores and conversation around a moonlit campfire.
Tauba Auerbach and Yuji Agematsu: Meander, on view through October 16, 2022, pairs new work by Tauba Auerbach and Yuji Agematsu, across parallel galleries, under the rubric of the meander as both noun and verb, motif and method. In plainly different ways, both artists sharpen our perception of the flows of matter and energy around us, oscillating between intuition and analysis, difference and repetition, the quotidian and the cosmic. The exhibition publication, a special issue of the journal The Serving Library Annual, is themed on the meander more broadly, with contributors approaching it from archaeological, ecological, mathematical, narrative, neurological, and other perspectives.
This exhibition is organized by the Clark Art Institute and curated by Robert Wiesenberger, curator of contemporary projects. Major funding for this exhibition is provided by Agnes Gund and Katherine and Frank Martucci, with additional support from Thomas and Lily Beischer, and Margaret and Richard Kronenberg.
This event is free. Please check the website on the day of the event in case of weather-related cancellation. For more information, visit clarkart.edu/events.
