No Agenda: Site-Specific Work by Visiting Studio Art Faculty

Opening Friday, Nov. 3 from 7-9 pm! Homebrew closes.
Town Hall (next to the Williams Inn) 
31 North St. 

No Agenda is a misnomer, a swipe at embodying the improvisational nature of a rapidly assembled site-specific exhibition. There is a goal; it’s to show work by Williams College Visiting Studio Art Faculty in Town Hall along a six-week timeline, and encourage unplanned pairings of work and site. Previously a fraternity house, and now a police station and government building, this charged site complicates the personal narratives and subjects apparent in each artist’s work.

In No Agenda, Zak Arctander photographs moments of intense indecision, creating images and videos that are innocent until they’re sinister, fun until they’re concerning. Allana Clarke employs sound to fix a critical gaze on hierarchies active and latent in our governments, communities and social circles. Kim Faler pauses and preserves memories before they’re forgotten with paintings sourced from other people’s personal notes. Ilana Harris-Babou casts obsolete office technology in plaster and satirizes the forced didactic in DIY and promotional videos. Nicole Maloof creates new drawings to consider Town records and whose histories are archived, and why.
