  • Instagram was not built overnight. Set in Stone: Lithography in Paris, 1815-1900, opening January 20, explores how artists and a handful of entrepreneurs refined a new medium to strike a balance between individual creative vision and a growing demand for mass produced images, setting the stage for the rich visual culture that we encounter every day. This major exhibition is complemented by Place on Stone: Nineteenth-Century Landscape Lithographs, opening January 13, which focuses on landscape as a subject of interest among British and French artists.

     

    It's Just a Job: Bill Owens and Studs Terkel on Working in 1970s America, also opening January 20, pairs the two iconic documentarians of work life during the decade, with 31 black-and-white photographs by Owens from his 1977 photobook Working (I Do It For the Money) and audio interviews selected from Terkel’s Working: People Talk About What They Do All Day and How They Feel About What They Do, first released in 1974.

     

    Stop by any time to view Ann Hamilton’s Fly Together (installed on the front of the museum), which is the current work featured in Pledges of Allegiance, a nationwide public art project by Creative Time. It is a serialized commission of sixteen flags, each created by an acclaimed contemporary artist to reflect the current political climate. Share your pics on social media with #PledgesOfAllegiance, tagging @CreativeTimeNYC and @zimmerliartmuseum on Instagram, as well as @creativetime and @zimmerlimuseum on Twitter.

     

    Join us for a preview of Set in Stone on Friday, January 19, from 5:30 to 8:30pm! Free and open to the public.
