Image Water is the subject and title of a far-reaching exhibition at the Jane Voorhees Zimmerli Art Museum at Rutgers University from September 1, 2010 through Januar 2, 2011.

Water explores the force of nature as element, purifier, place, allegory, and spectacle. Ranging from a 17th-century Chinese landscape to Bill Viola’s visceral video work, Ablutions (2005), works will be drawn from the museum’s own collections of French, American, Russian and Soviet Nonconformist art, photographs, prints, and children’s book illustrations, as well as from other public and private collections. Water is the subject and title of a far-reaching exhibition at the Jane Voorhees Zimmerli Art Museum at Rutgers University from September 1, 2010 through Januar 2, 2011.
