Join Us for New Programs this Fall

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 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. A Q&A follows the film, including discussion of these issues on local and national levels.

 

On November 7, Art After Hours celebrates the exhibition Commemorating the Russian Revolution, 1917/2017 with curator-led tours, readings of works by Russian poets, and a performance by local Caribbean trio The Young Picassos.

 

The series of artist talks offered in conjunction with Subjective Objective continues with documentary photographer, author, and educator Nina Berman on November 3 and MacArthur award-winning artist LaToya Ruby Frazier on November 16.

 

The Rutgers University Seeing Eye Puppy Raising Club brings their four-legged trainees to the Zimmerli for Puppies with a Purpose: An Afternoon of Art and Conversation on November 11. The program includes a curator-led tour of On the Prowl: Cats and Dogs in French Prints, a presentation by RUSEPRC, and an art activity. Free, open to the public, and appropriate for all ages!

 

Music at the Museum presents “Revolution – Music from a Time of Change” on November 12. The program features works by Rodion Shchedrin, Sergei Prokofiev, and Dmitri Shostakovich, performed by Anna Keiserman (piano) and Jordan Enzinger (cello).

MacArthur award-winning artist LaToya Ruby Frazier concludes a series of artist talks in conjunction with the exhibition Subjective Objective on November 16. She discusses how she has used photography to fight injustice—poverty, healthcare and gender inequality, environmental contamination, racism, and more—and create a more representative self-portrait.
