Zimmerli Art Museum To Present Illustrations By Harry DevlinZimmerli Art Museum To Present Illustrations By Harry Devlin
by BWW News Desk - Aug 22, 2016

Beloved characters Fletcher and the Knobby Boys charmingly remind viewers about childhood lessons that remain relevant no matter one's age: the value of teamwork and lending a hand (or paw) when others face tough dilemmas. In celebration of Rutgers University's 250th anniversary and the Zimmerli Art Museum's 50th year, the new exhibition Fletcher and the Knobby Boys: Illustrations by Harry Devlin spotlights artwork from two early stories by the New Jersey artist, who also was an instrumental figure in developing the university's resources related to children's literature. The 27 watercolor illustrations on view provide a rare opportunity for visitors to examine Devlin's original vision, with details of his technique in vivid color that are not always obvious in the books, which were produced in black and white or minimal, muted tones.

The work, at once humorous and incisively critical of authority, whether governmental or historic, encapsulates the underlying spirit of the diverse practices and approaches that comprise "Moscow Conceptualism."

'Thinking Pictures': Moscow Conceptual Art in the Dodge Collection September 6 to December 31, 2016 / Voorhees Special Exhibition Gallery 'Thinking Pictures' draws on one of the great strengths of the Norton and Nancy Dodge Collection of Nonconformist Art from the Soviet Union. It presents the visually provocative objects that distinguish Moscow Conceptualism from the forms associated with its namesake, the canonical oeuvres of American and British conceptual artists, in particular. This exhibition focuses on more than 40 individual artists and several collectives who lived and worked in Soviet Moscow from the 1960s to the 1990s. They were concerned with the essential task of creating an audience in an environment that lacked galleries, critics, and a viable art market but had its own institutional framework-one that privileged painting (Socialist Realism).
