Overview

This exhibition catalog documents the series of video and installation works by Tim Davis entitled The Upstate New York Olympics. Combining the artist’s ongoing interests in performance, photography, sculpture, and poetry, and by turns uncanny, bold, ridiculous, illegal, and downright dangerous, Davis’s “events” (including “Flag Pole Grapple,” “Lawn Jockey Leapfrog,” and “Stream Luge”) both document and at the same time powerfully comment on the artist’s concerns with the fundamentals of performance art, personal expression, regionalism, and the risks and rewards of the creative life.
