Realign: A Painting & Performance by Becca Baruc

Monday, April 13th, 2015

Sexy.

This Tuesday, April 14 at 7:00pm in the Payne Room of the Tang, Becca Baruc ’15 will present Realign, a painting and performance to be created tomorrow night for the first time ever!

Realign presents a new, large-scale painting and performance by Baruc that reflect the culmination of her work this semester. Baruc creates her sculptural paintings by crumpling and crushing the canvas before expanding it back out and painting “straight” lines on it. Audience members will be invited to move around the room and explore the painting from different vantage points. Then a short performance by the artist will follow, further exploring themes such as perspective, balance, and imperfection.

Said canvas is currently in the process of being made in Case Gallery–so you can stop by to take a look at it this very moment–after which it will be moved to the Tang and completed before the 7:00pm performance. After the performance, the painting will be returned to Case Gallery, where it will hang until April 18.

Realign is part of a larger series of paintings and performances by Baruc on Skidmore campus this semester. In process is an installation for the entry hall of the Dana Science Center–to be completed late April–and a painting that will be a part of an Independent Study in Dance by Anastasia Eckerson ’15, on view in the Art Building, Room 308, on Wednesday and Thursday, April 22 & 23 at 7:30 pm, and Friday, April 24 at 6:00 pm.

The performance is set to begin at 7:30, and there will be food beforehand, so be sure and arrive early to grab some goodies before catching what’s sure to be a killer show. Also, you might remember Becca Baruc from our coverage of ComFest 2015, which she co-produced. She’s also an American Studies major and a member of the Ad-Libs. And she’s performing in this week’s Friday Night Stand-Up. Whoa! What the fuck can’t she do?

“Fifty” Years of WSPN @ Case Gallery

Wednesday, April 10th, 2013
VERY LO-FI

VERY LO-FI

Tomorrow, come marvel at the historical relics of our humble college radio station, WSPN. Every year, the kids cool enough to get elected to the Board haul out some old junk from the office and hang it all up on the walls of Case Gallery, and tomorrow, they’ll be celebrating fifty years of broadcasting.*

According to the email I received from the lovely, effervescent, ambitious, beautiful GM, Annie Auchincloss, this year’s exhibit will include “letters from Prez Palamountain, telegrams from the FCC, and citation letters from Campo,” as well as:

  • The time WSPN was offered $25,000 for their call letters
  • The time WSPN almost died
  • The time WSPN got into a really big fight with SkidNews
  • A short history of really bad WSPN logos
  • An even shorter history of really good ones

The charming, boyish, dignified, persnickety programmer Mac Parsons will be providing tunes at tomorrow night’s opening, and apparently, there will be FOOD and BOOZE.

*The station was actually founded in 1973. Who could have guessed that a bunch of tight-jeans-wearing humanities majors would be so hopeless at math?
