Celebrate #ArtoberNJ with Us!

On October 13, Zimmerli members receive a special discount at the New Jersey Film Fesitval screening of "Kedi," which documents the cats who freely roam the streets of Istanbul. In addition, the exhibitions On the Prowl: Cats and Dogs in French Prints and Cats vs. Dogs: Illustrations for Children's Literature remain open until 7pm for viewing before the film.

 

Music at the Museum returns on October 15! Musicians from the Mason Gross School of the Arts Extension Division perform “Pictures at an Exhibition,” with works by Mussorgsky, Sviridov, and Prokofiev. The concert is preceded by a talk, and followed by a tour of the new exhibition Commemorating the Russian Revolution, 1917/2017.

 

Rutgers historian James Delbourgo stops by the museum to discuss his new book Collecting the World: Hans Sloane and the Origins of the British Museum on October 19.

 

The shifts in documentary photography that are seen in the exhibition Subjective Objective are paralleled in documentary film. On October 26, the Zimmerli presents a screening of the 2016 film Long Story Short, which features interviews with more than 100 people at homeless shelters, food banks, adult literacy programs, and job training centers in Los Angeles and the Bay Area, as they discuss their experiences of poverty: why they are poor, how it feels, and what they think should be done. A Q&A follows the film, including discussion of these issues on a local level.
