Opening reception with the artist: Thursday October 1, 5 - 7:30 PM

Danish artist Mads Lynnerup mounts a whimsical yet searching investigation of what people do when they depart from their ordinary routines. Having enlisted a sampling of the Troy and Rensselaer communities to take an unscheduled day off, Lynnerup documents the rich and inventive uses his subjects make of their stolen time. His installation combines short videos with oversized posters in a slyly subversive visual guide to leisure.

DANCE MOViES Commission 2007-2008 
Saturday October 3, 7 


Another chance to see the four dance films commissioned by EMPAC and premiered at EMPAC's opening festival!

Fusing dance with the moving image, these works span a wide geographic, visual and emotional range. They include: a poetic, autobiographical film shot entirely in Mozambique; a lively play on movement and architecture by Argentinian dancers; US veterans working with imagery and re-enactment; and a work combining the aesthetic of video surveillance and the movements of a Russian dancer.

Plus get an advanced look at Body/Traces, a video installation by Sophie Kahn & Lisa Parra that will officially premiere with the other recipients of the DANCE MOViES Commission 2008-2009 on Saturday November 7.
