Current Tendencies III: Artists from Milwaukee features the work of nine emerging, mid-career, and established Milwaukee artists working in a variety of media including photography, painting, drawing, printmaking, and sculpture. The artists participating in the exhibition are Tyanna Buie, William E. Carpenter, Evan Gruzis, Jon Horvath, Mark Mulhern, Jean Roberts Guequierre, Cassandra Smith and Jessica Steeber (in collaboration) and Jason S. Yi.
Each installment of the Current Tendencies exhibition series has differed slightly, and for this edition participating artists will respond to work(s) from the permanent collection of the Haggerty Museum. Each artist will be asked to select at least one permanent collection work and create an installation that places the work(s) in dialogue with their own. This exhibition model aims to elicit fresh perspectives about the Milwaukee artists’ work by making conceptual or aesthetic connections to work from the permanent collection. The lower level of the Haggerty Museum will be divided into discrete spaces for each artist or team.
This exhibition and accompanying programs are sponsored in part by the Friends of the Haggerty, the Joan Pick Endowment Fund, the Marquette University Andrew W. Mellon Fund, and the Milwaukee Arts Board and the Wisconsin Arts Board with funds from the State of Wisconsin.
