by BWW News Desk - Oct 1, 2014

A major exhibition of significant works, many of which are from the Zimmerli's Norton and Nancy Dodge Collection of Nonconformist Art from the Soviet Union, comprise the first museum exhibition of the art of this seminal global figure since his death in 2013. The 83 works in the exhibition include loans from private collections in the United States that have only rarely been publically exhibited. Oleg Vassiliev: Space and Light will be on view at the Zimmerli Art Museum at Rutgers through December 31, 2014 and is accompanied by a major catalogue, which will be released in November. The show has been organized by Julia Tulovsky, Ph.D., Associate Curator of Russian and Nonconformist Art, at the Zimmerli, who also served as general editor of the publication. It contains essays by Tulovsky, Molly Brunson, Andrew Solomon, and Robert Storr, as well as documentation on the artist's career, a chronology, and full-color illustrations of all the works in the exhibition.

by BWW News Desk - Oct 1, 2014

Drink more protein! Get some fresh air! Visit the employee gym! This is not advice from your favorite morning show or fitness magazine, but social messages promoted by artists in the new exhibition Sports and Recreation in France, 1840-1900 at the Zimmerli Art Museum at Rutgers. As Rutgers enters its first season of competition in the Big Ten, the Zimmerli visits late 19th-century France for a glimpse at the origins of how we perceive sports today. On view through January 11, 2015, the exhibition of prints, drawings, photographs, and posters by some of the era's most recognized artists – Jules Cherét, Honoré Daumier, Hermann-Paul, and Edouard Vuillard – reveals the 19th century's burgeoning interest in competitive and recreational sports, an interest now ubiquitous in our lives and in today's print and live media.

The Zimmerli Art Museum Presents JESSE KRIMES: APOKALUPTEIN: 16389067The Zimmerli Art Museum Presents JESSE KRIMES: APOKALUPTEIN: 16389067
by BWW News Desk - Oct 1, 2014

Making art serves as an important meditative process for individuals to contemplate – and reflect upon their own roles in – the world around them. Jesse Krimes: Apokaluptein: 16389067, on view at theZimmerli Art Museum at Rutgers University through December 14, 2014, is the culmination of one man's experiences. Krimes, who lives and works in Philadelphia, created the individual panels for Apokaluptein: 16389067, the mural at the center of the exhibition, while serving a prison sentence. An art school graduate and professional artist before the arrest, he did not have access to traditional art supplies during the six years of his incarceration and invented a print-transfer system using a plastic spoon, images from The New York Times, and hair gel on prison bed sheets to achieve a silk-screen effect. The result is a 15x39-foot quilt-like installation of thin cotton, loosely nailed to the wall to form a delicate curtain. Figuratively, however, the sheets are very dense, creating layers of meaning. They invite viewers to look more closely and not only join the conversation that the artist has initiated, but also consider their own mediated view of the world. (more...)
