A new exhibition, “Trey Duvall: Do, Do, Do, Do, Do,” will open Saturday, Aug. 10, at the University of Wyoming Art Museum. 

“Do, Do, Do, Do, Do” presents an evolving site-specific sculpture, “Spool/Unspool,” and a rotating frieze of video performances. Duvall’s work concerns entropy, futility, humor, duration, stamina and material or physical exhaustion. His creative practice includes various forms of large-scale installation, video, performance and other sculptural and organizational mediums. The exhibition will be on view through Nov. 16.

Duvall will visit UW Nov. 11-15. He will give an artist talk Tuesday, Nov. 12, from 6-7 p.m. in Room 111 of the Visual Arts Building. UW students will perform “Here to There” in collaboration with the artist and in conjunction with “Do, Do, Do, Do, Do” Thursday, Nov. 14, from 5-7 p.m. in the lobby of the Visual Arts Building. “Here to There” will create an absurdist assembly line, exploring repetition, futility and fallibility. Events are free and open to the public.

“We are very excited to bring Trey’s installation work to Wyoming,” says Nicole Crawford, chief curator of the UW Art Museum. “He creates spaces that force us to confront and think about the installation and pushes the boundaries of what we think of a ‘typical’ artwork.”

Willett Drive in Laramie, the museum is open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Thursday hours are extended to 7 p.m. Admission is free.
