Hudson Views celebrates the 400th anniversary of Henry Hudson's discovery of the river that now bears his name. This exhibition focuses on prints depicting river scenes, which were published during the late nineteenth century. On public view for the very first time is an original copy of the deed of purchase by the Associates of the Jersey Company for a substantial portion of the Van Vorst family's land holdings. The document, executed in 1804, marks the first of several mergers of surrounding villages and settlements into what would later become the "City of Jersey."

? On view through December 2009



The museum remains grateful to Hudson County Executive, Thomas A. DeGise, and the Board of Chosen Freeholders for loaning significant works from Hudson County's archives for Hudson Views, and for supporting the exhibition and interpretive programs.

In addition, an ambient sound installation will be presented in the museum's atrium by artists Jeff Thompson and Matt Ortega.

About Investigations of Place
Curated by New Jersey video artist Natalie McKeever, Investigations of Place explores how the landscapes of personal places such as homelands, childhood homes, ancestral spaces, and places of exile take on new forms when combined with memories and individual experiences. "The videos selected for Investigations of Place illustrate personal narratives imprinted on landscapes, and landscapes imprinted on personal narratives, videos that use experimental imagery to explore how spaces are remade once they are remaining in the mind, and videos that strive to define and delve into the concept of place." says McKeever.

Investigations of Place is on view at Jersey City Museum
through September 13, 2009.

New! Watch a sampling of short films featured in
Investigations of Place at JCMedia! ?

Industrial Strength:
Precisionism and New Jersey

Industrial Strength features the work of Precisionist artists associated with New Jersey who created works inspired by the power of our region's industrial landscape. Precisionism, an important American artistic movement that developed in the wake of World War I, is defined by images of industry that are precise, sharply defined and iconic; its artists took inspiration from industry, the growing popularity of photography, and the metropolitan area as a place of living modernity.

Artists in the exhibition include Florence Cannon (1886-1947), Elsie Driggs (1898-1992), Peter Fiordalisi (1904-1988), Riva Helfond (1910-2002), Victoria Hutson Huntley (1900-1971), Louis Lozowick (1892-1973), Gus Mager (1878-1956), Jan Matulka (1890-1972) and Anita Plumb (1917-1991).

? On view through August 22, 2009

Industrial Strength: Precisionism and New Jersey is made possible, in part, by the Dedalus Foundation and The Judith Rothschild Foundation.

The NY Times on new video installation at Jersey City Museum!
#18

New York Times art writer Ben Genocchio reviews "Ask Chuleta", a new video installation by Wanda Raimundi-Ortiz on view now (and through April 26, 2009) at Jersey City Museum.

 

Click here to watch a clip from Wanda Raimundi-Ortiz's "Ask Chuleta" videos.

The New York Times Angry, Funny and Concerned About Identity By BENJAMIN GENOCCHIO Published: February 13, 2009 You?ve got to admire Wanda Raimundi-Ortiz, the 35-year-old performance and video artist from the Bronx whose work is now being shown at the Jersey City Museum. Despite the fact that identity politics in art has been out of fashion for a decade, she continues to make angry, difficult but also poignant and occasionally riotously funny works about being a Latina in the United States. Hers is art with something to say. But unlike a lot of identity-based art, her work is never tepid or academic. This is because Ms. Raimundi-Ortiz is not interested so much in theories and philosophical debate as in what is actually going on out in the world. This kind of art is not for everyone; it may make some people feel uncomfortable. But what I like about Ms. Raimundi-Ortiz is that she continually challenges the way we look at the world. Her performances pose alternatives to habitual judgments and prejudices, reminding us that how we see ourselves and others is bound up with an intricate mix of social and cultural mores. The current show contains three video performances in which the artist adopts the speech, mannerisms and dress of a young Latina from the projects, known as Chuleta, and instructs her viewers in art world topics like postmodernism, identity politics, Color Field painting and Dada. It is like a cross between Robert Hughes?s TV series ?The Shock of the New? and a novel by Oscar Hijuelos. Though numbered, the three videos here can be viewed in any order. Their format and content is pretty much the same, with the artist in each case taking an unfamiliar, often complex art world topic and then attempting to explain it using language, terms and analogies familiar to Latino teenagers. She is foul-mouthed, opinionated and sassy, with a fondness for food and Internet imagery. But through it all she somehow manages to get the basic information across. It is easy to laugh while watching these videos, especially if you know anything about art. The third one, ?Topic Three: Color Field Painting? (2007), is a lot of fun, especially a moment in which Chuleta, recounting a recent museum visit, recalls having seen what she believes to be the same painting by Mark Rothko at the dentist?s office. Further reflection leads her to the realization that it must have been a print. In ?Topic Two: Pollock and Kahlo? (2007), Chuleta, dressed in denim overalls with a large hairbrush in her back pocket, gives an impromptu demonstration of how to make a Jackson Pollock painting. It is a mess. She then attempts to explain Abstract Expressionism before getting frustrated and, in desperation, advising everyone to order the movie about Pollock?s life on Netflix. Then there is the scene in ?Topic One: Contemporary Art? (2006), the first video in the series and probably the funniest, in which she explains the concept of the ?white cube? gallery. Her explanation is matter-of-fact: ?It sounds stupid but it is four white walls in the shape of a box where you be putting the pictures.? It is refreshing to hear someone cut through all the art-world mumbo-jumbo. Chuleta?s na?vet? can be charming, but her folksy and frequently skewed art history lessons have a more serious purpose. Time and again in these videos she makes reference to Latinos? being intimidated by the art world and not feeling welcome at museums. She repeats in all three videos that her goal is to ?bridge the gap between the art world and everyday people.? One way the videos attempt to do so is by demonstrating how Latinos can see themselves and their experiences depicted in the work of artists. The paintings of Frida Kahlo, discussed in ?Topic Two: Pollock and Kahlo,? become an occasion for reflection on the trials of pregnancy, female suffering and male infidelity. In short, these videos have a dual mission. On the one hand they seek to educate young Latinos about beauty and imagination in art. But they also try to demystify art, to show how, at its best, it reveals something that may otherwise be invisible to us in daily life. This is a quality anyone, of any background or education, can appreciate. ?Wanda Raimundi-Ortiz: Ask Chuleta,? Jersey City Museum, 350 Montgomery Street, through April 26.

Financial Advice for Artists at JC Museum on Saturday

By Jon Whiten
From www.jerseycityindependent.com
Jan. 8, 2009

?Money is a four-letter word in the art world, it?s taboo,? says Jersey City Museum program coordinator and artist Brendan Carroll. ?Why discuss what I do not have? I?d rather eat ice cream and go to the movies.?

It?s likely to be a little cold for ice cream this weekend, and the movies are kind of pricey, so artists who usually shy away from personal finance might want to check out the ?Cash Flow: Trickle or River?? workshop at the museum on Saturday afternoon.

The program marks the return of a series of professional development workshops for artists put together by the Museum and the the Hudson County Office of Cultural & Heritage Affairs/Tourism Development (HCOCHA). The series successfully debuted last year with an average of 90-100 people at each event, so the two organizations decided to give it a go again this year.

Saturday?s workshop will be led by accountant and artist Susan Lee, who hosts and produces ?You and Your Money? on WBAI-FM. She covers everything from managing your taxes and increasing your income flow to more esoteric matters having to do with money, creativity and lifestyle choices.

Carroll, who saw Lee?s presentation and recommended her to be part of the series, says that her advice is particularly powerful because it ?was grounded in her personal experience.?

Lee had a day job as a cab driver when she realized that she was good at doing taxes, and didn?t mind doing it. She left the five-day-a-week cab driving gig for a three-month-a-year tax preparing gig, and giving her more time to concentrate on her art.

With the economic downturn reducing the grantmaking capacities of charitable foundations and hurting cultural institutions, Saturday?s panel should help artists fine-tune their financial strategies at a time when we all have a little less money to work with.

The HCOCHA?s Meredith Lippman says that is no accident. When designing this year?s workshop, the organizers took the pulse of the local arts community to find out what kind of professional development might be most helpful.

?The state of the current economy is a primary concern,? Carroll says. ?From East to West Coast, the nonprofit world has been devastated by the financial collapse.? He adds that like many other Americans ? artists or otherwise ? he has no financial safety net and lacks health insurance.

?I live paycheck to paycheck. If I miss work, I can?t pay bills. If I need to see a doctor, I have no insurance,? he says. ?This is scary.?

While Long Valley, N.J., artist Buel Ecker says she hasn?t been profoundly affected by the economic downturn, she does say that she is looking forward to learning some specifics at Saturday?s panel.

?I hope to get information I need to more routinely and efficiently organize my record keeping,? she says, ?and some information on what is and what isn?t allowed for income tax purposes.?

Ecker, who attended last year?s workshops as well, says that artists often find it hard to talk about money because it ?gets into the whole philosophical discussion about process and product? and the age-old question of the relation between art, commerce and authenticity.

?The bottom line,? she says, ?is that each artist makes their own choices of why they create and then must make the personal choice of if and how to sell their creations and how to fit art-making into their lives.?

Carroll says that, for him, that was the takeaway from Lee?s presentation: learning how the ?rest? of an artist?s life affects his or her ability to make art.

?It was an epiphany. I began to see how my lack of finances, and my refusal to grapple with my finances, dictated the type of work that I made,? he says. ?I guess I figured that I would find a bag of money on the side of the road, and that would be that. Magical thinking. Well, I have not found that bag of money.?

Open Call for Video Artists
Investigations of Place
Jersey City Museum's Media 1x1 Series
Natalie McKeever, Guest Curator

Author and theorist Lucy Lippard defines "place" as "space plus memory." Separate from landscape art, investigations of place explore how the landscapes of personal places such as homelands, childhood homes, and ancestral spaces take on new forms when combined with memories and individual experiences. We are asking for submissions that successfully use video to illustrate personal narratives imprinted on landscapes, and landscapes imprinted on personal narratives, videos that use experimental imagery to explore how spaces are remade once they are remaining in the mind, and videos that strive to define and delve into the concept of place.

Between three and nine videos will be chosen for participation in the Jersey City Museum's Media 1x1 video series. The videos will play on three small screens on the first floor of the museum from May - September 2009.

Please submit unformatted DVD's, NTSC format only, preferably .MOV, and include a short synopsis of the work and your contact information. Please send entries, postmarked by March 6, 2009, to:
