2020 Fall

September 16—December 18, 2020
EMPAC — Troy, NY USA

2020 Fall

EMPAC continues to be closed for in-person events for the general public, however, please check back here and follow us on  Instagram for updates related to our curatorial program.

Although our fall program will look different than it has in the past as we continue to follow university policies related to the coronavirus, we are continuing work with artists on the commissioning and production of new ambitious performances and artworks across music, time-based visual art, theater and dance.

We look forward to sharing behind-the-scenes peeks into artist residencies along the way. Stay tuned!
