IDreamworlds and Catastrophes- Intersect...Dodge Collection | Zimmerli Art Museum
Ksenia Nouril (née Yachmetz) (B.A. Art History, ’09)  organized an exhibition of Soviet nonconformist art from the collection of Norton and Nancy Dodge at the Zimmerli Art Museum at Rutgers University in New Brunswick, NJ. Dreamworlds and Catastrophes: Intersections of Art and Science in the Dodge Collection opens to the public this Saturday, March 12.
The exhibition examines the consequences of innovations in science, technology, mathematics, communications, and design on unofficial Soviet art. Produced between the 1960s and 1980s, the works on view address themes of international significance from a turbulent period marked by the building of the Berlin Wall, the Cuban Missile Crisis, and a failed attempt at improved United States-Soviet relations. Dreamworlds and Catastrophes features over 50 works by artists from the former Soviet republics of Estonia, Latvia, Russia, and Ukraine. It will be on view until July 31, 2016.
On Thursday, April 14, a public program and reception will take place, starting with a walk-through at 4pm. This will be followed by two invited guest lectures on American and Soviet Cold War art and politics by John J. Curley, Ph.D. of Wake Forest University and David Foglesong, Ph.D. of Rutgers.
I would be honored to welcome you at the Zimmerli anytime, so please let me know if you’re planning a visit. Information about driving directions, parking, and public transportation (50 minutes from NY Penn Station) can be found here: http://www.zimmerlimuseum.rutgers.edu/about/visit-us.
