• Overview

    The New Jersey State Museum will present a series of seven in-gallery talks with artists featured in the 2022 New Jersey Arts Annual: Reemergence exhibition on select Wednesdays through the run of the show. Each event will feature two artists who will discuss their work in the context of the exhibition; each program will run for 45 minutes to one hour. These free lunchtime talks will begin at 12:15 PM in the exhibition gallery and will offer attendees a deeper understanding of the featured artists and their practice. The New Jersey Arts Annual: Reemergence exhibition is on view through April 30, 2023. The first talk in the series will take place on September 21 and features Donté Hayes and Donna Conklin King. Mr. Hayes’ artwork is informed by research and engagement with traditional African heirlooms and initiation rites, as well as his interest in history, science-fiction and hip-hop culture. Donna Conklin King explores the possibilities of concrete as a medium as she creates environments that address the relationship between nature, architecture and the inevitable ruins of civilization. The October 19th talk will feature artists José Camacho and Matilda Forsberg. Mr. Camacho’s richly layered surfaces combine commercial methods of artistic production with subject matter that explores memory and cultural heritage. In her paintings, Ms. Forsberg reflects on migration and multicultural identity, most recently meditating on what it means for her and her family to settle in a foreign country and culture.
