Current Tendencies II: Artists From Milwaukee

Current Tendencies II features 10 Milwaukee artists working in a variety of media including: photography, painting, drawing, printmaking, video and sculpture. The exhibition presents many all-new, never-before-seen works, created specifically for the Haggerty Museum.

Each artist was paired with a Marquette professor who wrote a reflection of the artist’s work based on the professor’s area of expertise, creating dialogue between artist and scholar and connecting philosophy, theology, political science, communications, etc., to the works in the exhibition.

The ten artists are: Reginald Baylor, Mark Brautigam, Julian Correa, Lisa Hecht, Sharon Kerry-Harlan, Luc Leplae, Will Pergl, Nathaniel Stern, Jessica Meuninck-Ganger and Jordan Waraksa.

Jessica Meuninck-Ganger’s first solo exhibition at GALLERY AOP revolves around one large artist’s book: 1.2 x 2.3 x 6 meters, when completely open. According to Meuninck-Ganger: ‘The larger than human scale book structure requires two handlers to manipulate and unfold its contents, and demands the arduous actions of opening, accessing, handling, and navigating the pages. Designed to be intentionally cumbersome and awkward, it initiates an interaction between the participants that closely mirrors the inter-personal exchange depicted in the imagery.’

Lens and Bos Opening

Nathaniel Stern and I have more than half a dozen works featured in a Museum show in South Africa. Opening is May 11, with a line-up of some of the most important contemporary photographers and video-makers on the African continent!

Lens Invitation

Bos Invitation

LENS:

University Museum 52 Ryneveld Street
The title of the exhibition alludes to the nature of the lens as an optical device that assists in capturing as well as casting an image. The exhibition will include works of diverse media where the lens is used as primary device for image production.

The aim of this exhibition is to combine a selection of older and more recent work produced by South African artists who apply the lens in their practice. The works do not only correlate aesthetically, but also connect in terms of the choice of subject matter. The focus of the exhibition will parallel certain modules taught in Visual Studies at Stellenbosch University, including the history of and discourse on the lens and the utopia/dystopia of photographic and video art in South Africa.

BOS:

Constructed images and the memory of the South African Bush War by Christo Doherty at the US Art Gallery cnr of Dorp and Bird Street

The opening event for Lens and Bos will both be on the evening of 11 May 2011.
The opening addresses for both exhibitions will take place at 19:00 in the Sasol Art Museum, 52 Ryneveld Street, Stellenbosch. A shuttle service will be provided between the venues for the duration of the evening. We encourage you to view both exhibitions.
