University Art Galleries/ George Segal Gallery
Currently closed to the public and will reopen on Thursday, Sept. 8th.
The George Segal Gallery enthusiastically presents Between Here and Then: Photography from the Collections of Montclair State University, on view from September 8th through December 17th, 2016.
Guest curated by Mimi Weinberg who teaches Art History and Theory at Montclair State University and Stern College of Yeshiva University, the exhibition highlights important photographic works in the University’s permanent collections. These collections include more than a dozen color Polaroids, as well as a series of black and white photographs, by Andy Warhol. The exhibit also features photographs by Donald Lokuta that capture George Segal in the process of casting his models for his famous Street Crossing installation, permanently on display at Montclair State University. Weinberg’s vision for the exhibition examines photography through a “phenomenological mode of viewing” and divides the work into four sections: Snapshots, functioning as visual diary entries; Sketches, photos implicated in the process of creating something else; Documents of objects and rituals; and Pictures, in which the images enhance the depicted subjects and are the ends in and of themselves.
An opening reception will be held on Thursday, September 8th, 2016 from 5:30-7:30pm.
Accommodations will be provided to all individuals with disabilities to participate in George Segal Gallery programs and activities, including materials in large-print format. (The Gallery requests two weeks’ notice when accomodations are being requested.)
