MOWA Downtown”

Jun 4–Sep 8, 2019


Free & Open for All

Earlier this year, MOWA invited ten artists who live or work in Milwaukee—Mark Brautigam, Brema Brema, Adam Carr, Portia Cobb, Mark Klassen, David Lenz, Jessica Meuninck-Ganger, Lon Michels, Keith Nelson, and Nathaniel Stern—to create a visual conversation about Milwaukee as a city of the twenty-first century. The results are an exciting visual cacophony of diverse views and interpretations.

Three artists—Brautigam, Brema, and Carr—use photography to challenge traditional notions of the iconic and the social hierarchy of architecture. Klassen and Nelson find meaning in the banal and uncertainties of urban living. Printmaker Meuninck-Ganger and digital artist Stern have combined media to create an installation of “moving images on paper.” And Cobb and Lenz each focus on the racial challenges and inequities of Milwaukee’s communities.
