African Mask

African Figures and Masks from the Montclair State University Permanent Collection features 14 objects from the Wingert Collection, gifted to the University in 1986. This is only the second time since then that the collection has been presented so cohesively and extensively. With the exception of one metalwork, all other masks, figures, and sculptures in the exhibit are woodcarvings and represent nine countries and several cultural groups in West Africa. The exhibit features innovative displays of some of the masks, including the in-house fabrication of decorative adornments such as raffia skirts and a cape of feathers, and even the creation of a complete figure to “wear” a mask for a more authentic presentation.

Between Then and Now Fall 2016 exhibition

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 8
th, 2016 from 5:30-7:30pm.
