Upcoming Artist Talks for Prof Adam Brent
Zimmerli Art Museum at Rutgers University | November 4, 7 PM – 9 PM
On November 4, the Zimmerli stays open late for Art After Hours: First Tuesdays, inviting visitors to unwind after classes or work.
6 pm: Curator-led tour of Sports and Recreation in France, 1840-1900. As Rutgers enters its first season of competition in the Big Ten, this exhibition visits late 19th-century France for a glimpse at the origins of how we perceive sports today, especially in the media. The tour is immediately followed by the next selection in the Big Ten: Art series, which spotlights one intriguing work of art from the collection each month.
6:30 – 8:30 pm: Rutgers Afro-Caribbean Ensemble makes its museum debut with a vibrant selection of Latin, Salsa, and Afro-Cuban styles. Mason Gross professor Bill O’Connell leads these top student musicians from the Department of Jazz Studies.
7 pm: Slide Jam welcomes artist David Ambrose and the collective BroLab to discuss new projects. Ambrose explores elements found in or on architectural facades, interiors, or floor plans in his pierced-paper paintings. The five artists who make up BroLab have built a practice bridging art and design principles exploring minimalist objects, with a broad vision that connects art to a live activity of both creation and engagement. Art After Hours takes place from 5 to 9 pm., featuring free admission and complimentary refreshments.
Brooklyn Arts Council | November 6, 6:30 PM – 9 PM
In conjunction with the exhibition Rub Me the Wrong Way, three artists, whose pieces are heavily rooted in architecture, will present and discuss their work. Artists: Adam Brent, Kirsten Nelson and Traci Talasco.
