MOWA at Saint John’s On The Lake
July 18 – October 8, 2019
Exhibit Opening Thursday, July 18, 5:45 p.m.
(Milwaukee, WI) The Museum of Wisconsin Art (MOWA) is pleased to showcase the unique works of photographers Barbara Ciurej and Lindsay Lochman at MOWA On The Lake located at Saint John’s On The Lake, 1840 North Prospect Avenue in Milwaukee.
A complimentary reception and Artist’s Talk will mark the exhibit opening Thursday, July 18. The reception begins at 5:45 p.m. in the Museum Gallery, followed by the Artist’s Talk at 6:30 p.m. in the Cultural Arts Center. Light refreshments will be served.
Photographers Barbara Ciurej and Lindsay Lochman have collaborated for more than thirty years on projects that challenge the viewer to think differently. In Processed Views: Surveying the Industrial Landscape, the dynamic duo reinterprets the work of nineteenth-century photographer Carleton Watkins whose western landscapes were both aesthetic documentation and advertisements for the bounty of America. Ciurej and Lochman use mass-produced, processed foods such as marshmallows, potato chips, cereal, and gelatin to recreate these landscapes, forcing the viewer to reexamine notions of consumption, progress, and changing landscapes—both natural and societal.
Light Refreshments will also be served at Gallery Day and Night:
Friday, July 19, 5:00–9:00 p.m. and Saturday, July 20, 10:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m.
MOWA On The Lake is Open daily from 10:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m. Admission is free. Limited parking is available on the south side of building.
