  • Lokuta met Segal in 1984 at the sculptor’s studio, located on his family’s farm in South Brunswick. The photographer soon returned to shoot a professional portrait, sparking an artistic alliance that would engage him for more than 16 years and result in nearly 15,000 negatives. The second installment of this two-part exhibition, on view May 23 to July 31, focuses on Segal at work on his iconic figures.

  • Picturing War: Selections from the Zimmerli Art Museum Collection provides visitors the opportunity to reflect on specific battles and how they factor into broader themes. With nearly 130 prints, paintings, photographs, and sculptures by more than 50 artists, the emphasis is on the daily lives of soldiers and civilians: their moments of turmoil, but also their compassion and determination. Documenting the great civil and global wars of the modern era – some created on the frontline, others through the lens of history – the exhibition draws from the museum's diverse collections of American, European, Japanese, and Russian and Soviet art.

  • Through the Looking Glass: Hyperrealism in the Soviet Union is the first Zimmerli show to chart the development of Hyperrealism by artists who lived and worked in Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Russia, and Ukraine during the late 1970s and early 1980s. Exploring various themes and mediums, they developed images of Soviet life that reflected their urban and social environments through documentary and metaphysical lenses.
