Organized by the Gregory Allicar Museum of Art and showcasing the museum’s longstanding strength in 20th-century art of the United States and Europe, Off Kilter, On Point: Art of the 1960s from the Permanent Collection highlights the depth and breadth of artworks in the Colorado museum permanent collection. The exhibition brings exemplary artwork in a wide range of media and styles to the gallery at The College of New Jersey, from abstraction to pop, presenting novel juxtapositions that reflect the tumult and innovations of their time.

The 1960s marked a time of undeniable turbulence and strife, but also a period of remarkable cultural and societal change. The decade saw the civil rights movement and the Civil Rights Act, the Cuban missile crisis, the Vietnam conflict, political assassinations, the moon landing, the first televised presidential debate, “The Pill,” and, arguably, a more rapid rate of technological advancement and cultural change than ever before. The accelerated pace of change was well reflected in the art of the time, where styles and movements were almost constantly established, often in reaction to one another. This exhibition presents most of the major stylistic trends of art of the 1960s in the United States and Europe, drawn from the Gregory Allicar museum’s permanent collection.

TCNJ’s Art Gallery is located in the AIMM Building on the campus at 2000 Pennington Road in Ewing, NJ.
