Syracuse is the site of Intermissions, a multi-venue exhibition project featuring Barry Anderson’s colorful and enigmatic video and still work. The exhibition creates opportunities, sometimes in unexpected places, for a refreshing change of view from everyday life.
The first of Anderson’s installations, including a screening of his video Pigeon at the Everson Museum of Art and three billboards in various locations around Syracuse, are up. The exhibition is already making its presence known, with a long front-page article in today’s CNY section of The Post-Standard. Also posted online today is videographer Ellen Blalock’s interview with Barry Anderson – you can watch the in-depth discussion with the artist on Syracuse.com. Finally, open at the Menschel Gallery in SU’s Schine Student Center is Suspension, an exhibition of Anderson’s moving and eloquent aerial photographs.
