Art on Hulfish and Art@Bainbridge

Graduate students from all departments are invited to visit our two downtown galleries to view art and enjoy refreshments while mingling with Museum curators. Small bites, wine, and a special cocktail will be served.

On view at Art on Hulfish (11 Hulfish Street), Art about Art: Contemporary Photographers Look at Old Master Paintings explores the work of contemporary artists who use photography and video to reimagine portraits and still lifes by early modern European artists. On view at Art@Bainbridge (158 Nassau Street), Victor Ekpuk: Language and Lineage features the paintings, sculptures, and works on paper of Victor Ekpuk, a Nigerian American contemporary artist known for his vibrant visual repertoire inspired by Nsibidi, an ancient system of communication from southern Nigeria and northwest Cameroon. Students will have the opportunity to meet the curators of Art about Art—Ronni Baer, Allen R. Adler, Class of 1967, Distinguished Curator and Lecturer, and Peter H. Fox, curatorial associate—and the curator of Victor Ekpuk, Annabelle Priestley, curatorial assistant. 

LATE THURSDAYS! This event is part of the Museum’s Late Thursdays programming, made possible in part by Heather and Paul G. Haaga Jr., Class of 1970. Additional support for this program has been provided by the New Jersey State Council on the Arts, a partner agency of the National Endowment for the Arts.
