University Art Museum
Group Exhibition

The University Art Museum’s exhibition Affinities and Outliers: Highlights from the University at Albany Fine Art Collections features over two hundred art works by fifty artists spanning the mid-twentieth century till today. The exhibition encompasses drawing, painting, photography, prints, and sculpture by established as well as less recognized artists. It highlights notable examples of art historical movements including the Harlem Renaissance, Abstract Expressionism, Pop, Minimalism, Conceptual Art, the Bay Area Figurative Movement, Pictorialism, and the Pictures Generation.

By creating visual conversations between iconic and lesser-known artists, the exhibition seeks to challenge established timelines and affinities by emphasizing a shared sensibility among artists working across time and media.
