Beginnings: three early-career Wisconsin artists
Fine Arts Gallery
Through Apr 22
New works by Alyssa Krause, Daniel McCullough, and LaNia Sproles. Sproles's large cutout mixed media figurative collages reference philosophies of self-perception, queer and feminist theories, and inherent racial dogmas. Krause’s paintings question the parameters of perception. McCullough investigates the atmosphere of place through chance-based approaches to photography.
The Strike Was Broken: Redacted Historical Marker Rubbings
Foundation Gallery & Virtual
Through Mar 30
Shaun Slifer makes rubbings of historical markers as a project for understanding the language of state-sanctioned history through intentional erasure and omission which mirrors that of many “official” narratives. These wax-relief rubbings are made on-site using hand-made crayons. His process is deliberately visible, public and accessible.
Kledage, sculptural objects from Gerit Grimm
Fine Arts Gallery & Virtual
Through Apr 22, 2021
A collection of sculptural objects including both her highly-acclaimed, wheel-thrown ceramic figures and her recent fabric sculpture. Grimm’s work pairs an often-whimsical subject matter steeped in folklore, referencing fairytales, fables, and princesses with impressive feats of technical virtuosity and physical scale.
