Unphotographable Walking Tour

Join artist Tim Davis in a walking tour of the grounds of the Tang Teaching Museum and the Skidmore College campus.

Think about looking at the world without taking pictures of it on this walking tour of the Skidmore Campus guided by artist Tim Davis. Either before or after the tour, be sure to check out Elevator Music 29: Tim Davis — Unphotographable, which features a new sound piece by Tim Davis consisting entirely of composed samples of the word “unphotographable” taken from various recordings of the 1937 Rodgers and Hart show tune “My Funny Valentine,” and his Photography Liberation Front, a collection of “No Photography” signs that the artist stole from museums and churches around the world.

Davis received his BA from Bard College and his MFA from Yale University. He has exhibited his work in solo exhibitions in the MACRO Museum in Rome, the Greenberg Van Doren Gallery in New York, and the Museum of Contemporary Photography in Chicago, among others. In 2008, he was the recipient of the Joseph H. Hazen Rome Prize and in 2005 he received the Leopold Godowsky Jr. Color Photography Award. His works are in the permanent collections of institutions including The Guggenheim Museum, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Whitney Museum of American Art, and The Walker Art Center. Davis currently lives in Tivoli, NY, and teaches photography at Bard College.
