New Jersey Museum of Contemporary Art presents HEADS

New Jersey Museum of Contemporary Art presents HEADS, an exhibition featuring 50 large-scale paintings by Romanian artist, Dumitru Gorzo, on view through October 14, 2012 in downtown Red Bank, New Jersey.

The paintings are installed on 9 exterior walls in this picturesque town along the Navesink River, an hour south of New York City by car or train. The exhibition effectively transforms Red Bank into an open museum portrait gallery. Through this serendipitous personal interaction with significant art of our time outside of traditional white museum walls, NJMoCA brings a new and thought-provoking cultural experience directly into the everyday lives of people who are exploring the town by foot, by car, or passing through by train.

Curated by the distinguished art historian and critic, Marek Bartelik, the series of 4 x 8 ft. paintings commissioned exclusively for this exhibition focuses on expressive, allegorical, strange, satirical, and futuristic heads that explore portraiture with a nuanced observation of the individual spirit.
