The exhibition Future Perfect: Picturing the Anthropocene at the University at Albany Art Museum is a grand compendium of ideas that handily meets its purpose to “explore and inform,” but falls a bit short simply as an art exhibition.

Curated by Associate Professor Danny Goodwin, Director Janet Riker and Associate Director/Curator Corinna Ripps-Schaming, the show features significant individual pieces or bodies of work in a variety of media by 12 artists, augmented by 11 additional artists whose prints, drawn from the museum’s permanent collection by participants in a class project, create a sidebar exhibition within Future Perfect.

The anthropocene is the label now affixed to our current geological era, so named to reflect the changes to the earth’s climate and ecology that human activity has caused. Much of the work that has been selected to represent this concept here leans toward the futuristic, including animated science fiction film projects by Colin C. Boyd and Jacolby Satterwhite, and colorful, cartoonish critter paintings by Alexander Ross.

Tickets are on sale now.

Doors open at 7pm for Kevin Richards’ Pre-Party. Tickets are $20.

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT: Stand-up comedian/singer-songwriter Stephen Lynch is scheduled for a return to The Egg as part of his My Old Heart Tour. Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday (December 2).

Is he a stand-up comic with a guitar?

Or is he a funny singer-songwriter?

Priced at $35, tickets are slated to go on sale to the general public on Friday (December 2).
