April 22, 2019 | Tiananmen Square, 1989: Photographs by Khiang H. Hei
This exhibition marks the thirtieth anniversary of the Tiananmen Square protests through the work of the photographer Khiang H. Hei (b. 1968). Born in Cambodia and pursuing a college degree in the United States, Hei was studying abroad in Beijing when student activists began to agitate for political change. He started to take photographs soon thereafter, returning to Tiananmen Square over and over again to capture the hunger strikes and marches leading up to the bloody events of June 4, 1989. As a foreign student in the midst of a student-driven movement, Hei was both an insider and outsider. MUSEUM HOURS: T-F, 10am- 4:30pm. Sat-Sun, Noon-5pm. 1st Tues of most months, 10am-9pm. The museum is closed Mondays, major holidays, and the month of August. FREE Admission.

April 22, 2019 | Seeing and Knowing: The Natural History Drawings of Robert Bruce Horsfall
Around the turn of the 20th century, scientific disciplines increasingly shifted to molecular and behavioral studies, and the divide between scientists and “gentlemen naturalists” became more firmly entrenched. This exhibition explores how academically trained artist and New Jersey resident Robert Bruce Horsfall (1869-1948) negotiated these changing dynamics while working for scientists and natural history museums across the Northeast. MUSEUM HOURS: T-F, 10am- 4:30pm. Sat-Sun, Noon-5pm. 1st Tues of most months, 10am-9pm. The museum is closed Mondays, major holidays, and the month of August. FREE Admission.

April 22, 2019 | Irina Nakhova: Museum on the Edge
Irina Nakhova (born 1955) began working in the 1970s as one of the youngest members of the now well-known “school” of Moscow conceptualism. This is the artist’s first museum retrospective in the United States. This exhibition reflects Nakhova’s decades-long activities, beginning with her paintings of the late 1970s and documentation of her conceptual “Rooms,” through to her most recent interactive installations. “Battle of the Invalids” (2017) especially demonstrates the complexity of this trajectory: the artist’s constant engagement with global and local audiences, art history, and the ethics of visual arts practices today. MUSEUM HOURS: T-F, 10am- 4:30pm. Sat-Sun, Noon-5pm. 1st Tues of most months, 10am-9pm. The museum is closed Mondays, major holidays, and the month of August. FREE Admission.

April 22, 2019 | Becoming John Marin: Modernist at Work
Featuring some 80 artworks, the exhibition traces the artistic evolution of John Marin (1870–1951), an iconic American modernist, and explores his intuitive draftsmanship and innovative work in watercolors. In addition to subjects depicting New York City and Maine, for which Marin is best known, the exhibition features some of the artist’s earliest known drawings, including his lesser-known subjects of sites in northern New Jersey (where he resided for much of his life), works made during his European sojourn, and animals and circus subjects. A complementary presentation of 30 American prints from the Zimmerli’s collection explores how Marin’s contemporaries also portrayed a rapidly changing New York City and environs during the first half of the 20th century. MUSEUM HOURS: T-F, 10am- 4:30pm. Sat-Sun, Noon-5pm. 1st Tues of most months, 10am-9pm. The museum is closed Mondays, major holidays, and the month of August. FREE Admission.
