On Saturday, Bard College’s CCS/Hessel Museum brings three new exhibits to its galleries: “Score!,” a curatorial project by Amy Sillman and Cheyney Thompson; “Amy Sillman: one lump or two,” a survey of the artist’s development; and a collection of photographs by Anne Collier.

“Score!” and “Amy Sillman: one lump or two” will be on view, in conjunction with one another, in the Hessel Museum of Art. In the former, Sillman (the head of Bard’s MFA painting program) and Thompson began with the word “score” as their impetus, considering its many connotations—sequence, status, sex, sport, for example. The two artists play with the simultaneity of these notions in their presentation of selected works from Bard's Marieluise Hessel Collection by Nicholas Africano, William Copley, John Cage, and more. The second exhibit, curated by Helen Molesworth, features more than 90 of Sillman’s works, be they drawings, paintings, and moving images, and traces the progression of her style since the mid-‘90s.

“Anne Collier” is a compilation of close to 40 of the photographer’s works and deals with some of her most common themes: pop psychology, generic conventions of commercial photography, and autobiography. An illustrated catalog of essays will join the exhibition in Bard’s CCS Galleries.

The Bard Center for Curatorial Studies makes it its mission to encourage and explore more experimental approaches to the contemporary visual arts, particularly those with a multidisciplinary focus—a focus shared by its graduate program and, certainly, by the larger college.

A reception opens the exhibitions and a series of works from the Marieluise Hessel Collection on Saturday, June 28 from 1 to 4pm. Public tours every Sunday at noon in July and August; reservations at (845) 758-7562. On display until September 21.
