Weegee by Weegee

Weegee by Weegee

Photographs from the Jean Pigozzi Collection

Intense and often darkly humorous, Weegee’s voyeuristic portraits capture the excitement and stark realities of urban life. Weegee shot street vendors, kissing moviegoers and the victims of fresh crime scenes before the police’s arrival. His documentary-style immediacy revealed his perspective on the reality of New York City and influenced generations of photographers and filmmakers. Weegee by Weegee intimately details the extremes of the modern city. May 2 — July 26, 2015.

Jan Yoors

A Retrospective

A remarkably gifted craftsman, Jan Yoors excelled in tapestry, painting, photography and drawing. His extraordinary life informed much of his practice: After absconding with a Gypsy tribe at age 12, he worked closely with the Allies to help the Gypsies escape genocide during World War II. This selection celebrates one of the most prolific, but perhaps understudied, artists of the 20th century. Organized by The Baker Museum. May 16 — July 26, 2015.

The Sculpture of Rainer Lagemann

Divers, a new sculpture installation in the Figge Conservatory, includes six suspended figures made exclusively for The Baker Museum. This series presents the classic theme of artistic expression — the human form. Using elegantly crafted metal squares, sculptor Rainer Lagemann provides a powerful vision of the human body’s strength and delicacy. If you happen to be in the museum at night, don’t miss the sculptures’ dramatic shadows upon the conservatory floor. September 6, 2014 — July 26, 2015.
