Norton and Nancy Dodge Collection of Nonconformist Art from the Soviet Union

Apr 30, 2012 - Dec 31, 2014
Dodge Wing Upper Level

The Norton and Nancy Dodge Collection of Nonconformist Art from the Soviet Union, donated to the Zimmerli in 1991, underwent an extensive reinstallation in spring 2012. Museum staff took the opportunity to rotate works on display, as well as compose more in-depth translations from Russian to English of some of the key artists' texts and interpretations to create a more comprehensive cultural context for visitors. The refurbishment continues the Zimmerli's commitment to preserving the artworks in its trust, one of the cornerstones of the museum's strategic plan, and presenting these groundbreaking artworks that document a key period in the twentieth century.

In his May 2012 Wall Street Journal article, Tom L. Freudenheim stated, "The prospect of seeing more parts of the Dodge Collection, as the Zimmerli periodically reinstalls the two floors of these generous galleries, ought to excite anyone interesting in appreciating the meaningful ways in which history and art can clash. If we really want to come to terms with a fuller range of modernisms, a trip to the Rutgers campus is now required."

Research and scholarship, graduate fellowships, collection care and conservation, exhibitions, publications, and educational programs associated with the Dodge Collection are supported by the Zimmerli's Avenir Foundation Endowment Fund, Rutgers University, and the University's Dodge Lawrence Fund. A special capital grant from Rutgers University supported the refurbishment of the upper level of the Dodge Wing.

Hours

Tuesday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Saturday and Sunday, noon to 5 p.m., and the first Wednesday of each month (except August), 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. The museum is closed Mondays, major holidays, and the month of August.

General Admission

George Segal

George Segal, Girl Behind Chair and Bedpost, 1975
Sep 01, 2011 - Dec 31, 2014
Voorhees Gallery

George Segal (1924–2000) has been acclaimed as one of the major American sculptors of the late twentieth century. Born in New York City, Segal moved with his family to South Brunswick, New Jersey, in 1940. His father started a chicken farm, an occupation that Segal continued on land he purchased across the road from his father’s property (Segal’s family still resides at that location). After turning to art as a profession, Segal converted the chicken coops to studio space, where he developed his methods and ideas during a career spanning over 50 years. From 1942 to 1946, Segal took several humanities courses part time at Rutgers University, though his early training in art and art education occurred at Cooper Union, Pratt Institute of Design, and New York University. Segal received his master of fine arts degree from Rutgers in 1963 followed by an honorary doctorate in 1970.

While painting, drawing, and printmaking were always important aspects of the artist’s production, Segal’s international reputation was built on his sculpture. His best known works feature human figures cast in plaster directly from models, arranged in combination with objects, backdrops, and settings. His environmental works often depict relatively large “slices of life,” usually incorporating actual pieces of furniture or other artifacts—for example, an entire wall of a gas station or a section of a real New York City subway car.

Segal developed his subjects and techniques during the late 1950s and early 1960s, chronologically parallel to the rise and recognition of Pop Art. In 1959, Segal’s colleague and friend Allan Kaprow used Segal’s property as a location for “happenings,” free-form performance events that were among the significant sources for the Pop sensibility. However, Segal maintained an ambiguous relationship to Pop Art, and stated, “I feel detached from the phrase Pop Art and yet I have a fondness for it.” What separates his work from Pop Art is Segal’s unremitting emphasis on, and empathy with, human relationships and feelings, replacing Pop’s ironic or consumerist tendencies with a serious attempt to plumb human emotions and elicit profound reactions from the viewer.

The works in this gallery (as well as Bus Shelter, on view on the museum’s entry level) exemplify the many media and subjects Segal used over his lifetime. Old Testament Moon represents the earliest years of his career, when he produced expressionist figurative paintings. The remarkable seven-part Pregnancy Series, Segal’s only foray into serial sculptural imagery, records the external changes of a woman’s torso over time as it reflects the internal development of a child in her womb. The Zimmerli Art Museum gratefully acknowledges the generosity of the George and Helen Segal Foundation, which donated the painting and sculptures in this gallery.

Hours

Tuesday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Saturday and Sunday, noon to 5 p.m., and the first Wednesday of each month (except August), 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. The museum is closed Mondays, major holidays, and the month of August.

Abstraction in Sculpture

John Goodyear: Four Negatives, 197
Sep 01, 2011 - Dec 31, 2014
American Art Gallery

In the twentieth century, sculptors explored many options offered by abstract or nonrepresentational styles. The range of these styles is vast, from the severity of Louise Nevelson’s black modular wall relief to the organicism of Martha Walker’s tendril-like composition poetically titled Aphrodite. The expressive potential of sculptural abstraction is also seen in Herbert Ferber’s large cage-like structure, in which the implied movement of its twisting calligraphic beams contrasts with the rigor of the geometric framework.

The two- and three-dimensional hybrids of Jesús Rafael Soto and John Goodyear demonstrate the visual dynamics of Op Art. Both artists use solid, but essentially linear, elements moving in front of painted geometric patterns to create eye-teasing optical illusions. Abstracted reality finds an oblique presence in a few works, including Dorothy Dehner’s vertical wood structure, which alludes to a landscape viewed through a window. Mel Edwards arranges metallic planar forms to suggest a book on a lectern; this piece is a maquette for a large outdoor sculpture on the Livingston Campus of Rutgers.

Perhaps the most extreme technique for sculptural composition on view here involves the use of chance. Jean Arp was a major figure of Dada and Surrealism, early twentieth-century styles that encouraged semi-controlled techniques such as doodling, random placement, and acceptance of accidental effects. Alan Saret was associated with the “antiform” and “process art” styles that emerged in the 1960s. His Arc Fountain allows looped wire, a material of inherently chaotic structure, to seek its own arrangement with minimal intervention from the artist.

Hours

Tuesday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Saturday and Sunday, noon to 5 p.m., and the first Wednesday of each month (except August), 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. The museum is closed Mondays, major holidays, and the month of August.

Susanna and the Elders, ca. 1460-1475
Apr 30, 2011 - Dec 31, 2014
European Art Galleries

The collection galleries on the Zimmerli's lower level were refurbished and reinstalled in 2011, featuring selections from the Zimmerli's collection of Old Master paintings and a more extensive presentation of its nineteenth-century French holdings that focus on the museum's strength in portraits and caricatures, graphic arts, Japonisme, and works related to the popular culture of fin-de-siècle Paris. Several of the museum's signature works, including two important Italian Renaissance paintings, 36 sculptural caricatures comprising Honoré Daumier's Celebrities of the Juste Milieu, and a puppet theater were cleaned and conserved for the new installation. One section of the galleries features changing selections from the collection, primarily from the museum's holdings of nineteenth-century French prints and drawings.

Hours
