Suzanne Rose: An Exhibition Celebration

December 9, 2021

5:00pm

MOWA | DTN

Meet the artist, Suzanne Rose, and see her new exhibition Blind Spot: To Pass Among Them on view through February 20, 2022 at MOWA | DTN located inside Saint Kate—The Arts Hotel in downtown Milwaukee.

Enjoy a specialty complimentary cocktail during the event, then grab a drink from The Bar thereafter.

Suzanne Rose's lush black-and-white images are toned with a custom gradient that Rose developed by studying vintage prints. Despite the influence of yesteryear, Blind Spot is resolutely of the present, gently nudging viewers toward a more thoughtful relationship with their environment.

Rose photographs the gentle presence of the Anthropocene in the Midwest. Blind Spot presents the subtle violence that humans do to their environment and the quiet strength of nature. To Rose’s eye, trees suggest the human condition. Pruned to make way for telephone wires, saddled with hunting blinds, or set shoulder to shoulder with sheds, her trees exhibit the scars and imperfections associated with anthropomorphic personality. Abandoned buildings overgrown with wild vegetation demonstrate a resilient nature’s push back.

Advance reservations are required for this free event.
