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...)
