Richard Serra: Hedgehog

It gathers the whole space even better than I had

expected." Richard Serra, sometimes seen as the world’s foremost

contemporary sculptor, reflects on his work, "The Hedgehog and

the Fox," at Princeton University. With its installation last

spring between Peyton and Fine Halls, near the new Princeton Stadium,

it immediately became the largest sculpture on campus — a venue

already endowed with significant sculptures, thanks to the John B.

Putnam Jr. memorial collection of 20th-century works.

Tannenbaum’s "John Lennon and Yoko Ono, A Double Fantasy," an

Included in the show will be several of the earlier black-and-white

portfolio series. Gallery hours are Tuesday to Saturday, 11 a.m. to 5

p.m. To November 18.

In 1980, the Lennons were releasing their new album, "Double

Fantasy" and agreed to several photo sessions including one in Central

Park and one is a stark-white film studio. Both color and black and

white photos are on exhibit.

A 1967 graduate of Rutgers, Tannenbaum was working for the SoHo Weekly

News when the Lennons agreed to several photo sessions, including one

in Central Park and one in a Manhattan film studio. Emerging from five

years seclusion, the couple were about to release a new album, "Double

Fantasy," and talking to the press for the first time in years, before

tragedy struck.

"They were really nice," Tannenbaum recalls, noting that

speaking with John "was like talking with someone you’d known all your

life. While I was photographing John and Yoko, I knew these pictures

would be something special; I felt very optimistic about doing more

work together." His work has been featured on the cover of Time and

Newsweek; he has filed exclusive, photo reports from such global hot

spots as South Africa, Northern Ireland, and the Phillipines.

Magid was born in Ohio, but lived in Trenton and Pennington until the

age of five. Here she was introduced to the wild at the Cadwalader

Park Zoo and the Ellarslie Mansion "Monkey House." When the family

moved to the Morrisville area, Magid says, "It may be due to a lack of

close human neighbors there and then that I formed up the habit of

drawing plants and other woods life, branching out to fields, farms,

and rural waste places with my mother’s help."

Her father was a ceramic engineer for the American Standard

Corporation and a member of the American Ceramic Association.

"Crossing back and forth to Trenton accounts for other themes that

shaped my interior life and exterior work: An affinity for the river,

bridges, bridge contours, and their invitation to stretch out and find

or make adaptive or generous links."

everyday photography. To December 31.

Dating from the mid-19th to mid-20th centuries, the 90 "ordinary

photographs of ordinary people" featured in this exhibition were found

in shoe boxes at flea markets and yard sales or retrieved. Taken by

anonymous photographers, their power may be the result of a lucky

accident or of inspired planning that is reminiscent of such photo

masters as Man Ray, Henri Cartier-Bresson, and Diane Arbus. Found

photographs have become a hot new collectible in the art world.
