Currently on view at the Tang Teaching Museum at Skidmore College is Oliver Herring‘s Me Us Them, an exhibition culling fifteen years of work by the Season 3 artist. The show includes early knit-Mylar objects, experimental videos, elaborate photo-collages, and documentation of recent Task events, which invite participants to entirely shape the piece.

Herring’s work is centralized around human relationships and the intimacies of social interaction. You can find this out firsthand by applying to be one of the 35 willing-and-able for his next improvisational art-making Task force on March 22nd, which will take place in Saratoga Springs at Universal Preservation Hall.
