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).

Luis Mallo: Open Secrets

Luis Mallo creates photographs that are enigmatic and mysterious . In 2005, he began photographing spaces that are normally inaccessible to the average viewer: museum storage areas and vaults. The photographs in Open Secrets reveal the quiet solemnity of these spaces, but not all of their hidden secrets.
