Zimmerli Art Museum to Display 'Early Adopters: The Social Media Prototypes of Daumier and Warhol'Zimmerli Art Museum to Display 'Early Adopters: The Social Media Prototypes of Daumier and Warhol'
by BWW News Desk - Feb 11, 2016

Artists have always examined the intricacies of human nature – whether in their work or through the reactions of the viewer. Two new exhibitions at the Zimmerli Art Museum at Rutgers demonstrate how artists working nearly 150 years apart applied their understanding of the public's fallibility to create iconic images. Honoré Daumier and the Art of La Caricature and More than Fifteen Minutes of Fame: Warhol's Prints and Photographs, both drawn from the museum's extensive print collection and on view through July 31, demonstrate how these artists took advantage of the new technologies of their eras to disseminate their work to a broad public, influencing the views and tastes of their contemporaries. Daumier and Warhol also established legacies that remain relevant in today's visual political commentary and pop culture, particularly as seen in the endless supply of – and demand for – ideas and images in today's social media.

New Britain, Conn., January, 2016—The New Britain Museum of American Art (NBMAA) presents Bated Breath Theatre Company's original commissioned production of “Beneath the Gavel”, an interactive performance piece about high-end art auctions and the extraordinary adventures that happen when High Art meets High Finance.  Using the collections of the NBMAA as inspiration, Bated Breath will bring the audience into the hushed halls of a high-end auction house and blow them wide open as they dramatize the undercurrents, mixed motives, and tensions of high-stakes bidding on works of art. Audience members may engage directly in the action if they choose, bidding on works that will be won with fake money. Meanwhile, the differing perspectives of artists, collectors, auctioneers and many others will come together for an experience that is active, hilarious, serious, and immersive. Timed to coincide with the opening of the Museum's new wing, “Beneath the Gavel” will remind audience members why they love art and will enlighten them about the artists, curators, dealers, and collectors who bring the excitement to the public.

by BWW News Desk - Jan 22, 2016

New Brunswick, NJ—January 19, 2016—On March 12, the Zimmerli Art Museum at Rutgers will open Dreamworlds and Catastrophes, an exhibition exploring Soviet artists' engagement with science, technology, and design at the height of the Cold War. The artists featured in the exhibition captured the duality of the intense geopolitical circumstances and the sense of hopeful possibility created by technological advancement in Soviet military and space technologies. Works in the exhibition range from documentary photography, which memorialized scientific achievements and their influence on everyday life, to surrealistic abstractions that encapsulated the sense of a rapidly changing world, to kinetic sculptures that incorporated new technologies. Although created in the Cold War era of the 1960s to the1980s, these works have a renewed relevance and immediacy as current global events have reignited American and Western European tensions with Russia.
