Screening Event: Discovering Utopia

Friday, May 14 - 12:00pm Eastern

Join us for a screening of the film DISCOVERING UTOPIA, which tells the previously untold story of the VNIITE – the All-Union Scientific Research Institute of Technical Aesthetics.

Formed in the USSR in 1962 it brought together most progressive Soviet designers and became the head organization for the nationwide design system. Their work had been forgotten to history until recently, but the story of this remarkable organization is being pieced back together thanks to the efforts of the Moscow Design Museum, the Zimmerli's partners on the Everyday Soviet exhibition. Read more about the Discovering Utopia project here.

Member Event - Social Justice as a Theme in Jewish Art

Thursday, May 20 - 6:00pm Eastern

Margaret Olin, senior research scholar at the Yale Divinity School, and Hannah Shaw, graduate curatorial assistant at the Zimmerli, discuss the topic from a range of art historical perspectives. In addition, learn more about the upcoming exhibition Dateci: Sheba Sharrow and Primo Levi. It is based on a series of four mixed media paintings by Sharrow, whose work is well known in New Jersey and the Philadelphia area. Typical of her focus on 20th-century war and genocide, she was inspired by the poem Dateci (Give Us) by Levi, a writer and survivor of Auschwitz. The presentation is followed by an audience Q&A.
