Join us Thursday, March 21, at 7 pm, for a Dunkerley Dialogue with artist Yvette Molina, whose work is on view in the exhibition Yvette Molina: A Promise to the Leaves, and Adam Tinkle, Associate Professor of Media and Film Studies and Director of the John B. Moore Documentary Studies Collaborative (MDOCS).

Dunkerley Dialogues pair Skidmore professors with artists in a conversation format, which is often a catalyst for new connections and understandings across disciplines, and can spark new ideas for all participants. Dunkerley Dialogues are made possible by a generous gift from Michele Dunkerley ’80.

This event is free and open to the public. The program will include ASL interpretation by Liz Beauregard.

About the Speakers

Yvette Molina is a Mexican-American artist focused on the relationship between justice and care. Her work, often emanating from her community engagement and activism, incorporates processional banners, ritual, storytelling, costumes, collage, painting, and sculpture. Molina has exhibited across the United States and internationally, including at the Stockholm Fringe Festival, the Brattleboro Museum and Art Center, the Visual Arts Center of New Jersey, Arsenal Contemporary Art, SPRING/BREAK Art Show, NADA FAIR, and the Legion of Honor and de Young Museums of California. Molina lives in Oakland, California.

Adam Tinkle is Associate Professor of Media and Film, and Director of the John B. Moore Documentary Studies Collaborative (MDOCS), and a multidisciplinary artist focused on sound, video, collaborations, and the deployment of technologies of sensation and spectacle in negotiation with bodies and infrastructures. After studies in music with avant-garde legends Anthony Braxton, Alvin Lucier, Anthony Davis, and Pauline Oliveros, Adam’s soundworks have taken disparate forms, from sound sculptures to song cycles to music-theater to the “SoundMind” series of sonic mindfulness workshops he led on the Tang’s mezzanine between 2016 and 2019. His “visual music” practice, which reimagines expressive uses for antique TV equipment, yields glimmering, painterly abstractions and immersive spaces, as in the intimate and vulnerable explorations of screenlight and screenlife featured in his 2022 solo exhibition at the Arts Center of the Capital Region. More recently, Adam’s work has appeared in the form of “Farillon,” a monumental abstract chiming timepiece selected for the inaugural Troy Glow festival, a series of interactive video baths most recently presented at Club SPA Spa and the Flaherty Film Seminar, and new album releases of electroacoutsic experimental improvisations with his duo Sun Dogs and his trio Seven Count.
