New Jersey as Non-Site is set to be displayed Oct. 5 to Jan. 4.
Between 1950 and 1975, some of the postwar era’s most innovative artists flocked to a very unexpected place: New Jersey. Appreciating what others tended to ignore or mock, they gravitated to the state’s industrial wastescapes, crumbling cities, crowded highways and banal suburbs.
A exhibition of Felix Gonzalez-Torres work, called “Untitled,” is set for Oct. 21 to Dec. 16.
Cuban-born American artist Felix Gonzalez-Torres repurposed the billboard in an effort to engage diverse audiences and expand the public function of art. This fall, the museum will install one of Gonzalez-Torres’s billboards in twelve locations around the greater Princeton area, including the plaza just outside its front door.
