Exhibition Events
Screen Time


Screen Time: Photography and Video Art in the Internet Age, now on view at Art on Hulfish, features a global, intergenerational group of contemporary artists who explore a society in which online culture is omnipresent and new platforms for self-expression are constantly evolving.   

The Museum invites you to create your own video portrait inspired by Screen Time. Join us Thursday, June 30, at 5:30 p.m. for a workshop with New Jersey–based photographer Christopher Lopez to learn how to create a video portrait using your smartphone. Submit portraits here by Monday, July 11; select submissions will be featured on the Museum’s social media and during a celebration at Art on Hulfish on Thursday, July 21, at 5:30 p.m. 




Body Matters / Martha Friedman


Body Matters presents two new series of sculptures by Martha Friedman, a Princeton faculty member who draws inspiration from ancient Egyptian mummification, Greco-Roman portrait busts, nineteenth-century public monuments, and drawings of the brain structure and nerves by the early twentieth-century neuroscientist Santiago Ramón y Cajal. In bringing together these influences, Friedman mines the space between visceral and intellectual experiences of the body to consider the ways in which our physical forms shape our understandings of being human. See the exhibition at Art@Bainbridge, on view through Sunday, July 10.
