MILWAUKEE, WIS.- The Haggerty Museum of Art is leveraging its permanent collection to create two new shows for this fall. Current Tendencies III: Artists from Milwaukee and Re-Seeing the Permanent Collection: The Viewer’s Voice both opened Aug. 21 and run through Dec. 22, 2013.

Current Tendencies III: Artists from Milwaukee features the work of nine emerging, mid-career and established Milwaukee artists. The artists work in a variety of media including photography, painting, drawing, printmaking and sculpture. The participants have been asked to select at least one piece from the permanent collection and create an installation that places the work(s) in dialogue with their own.

Re-Seeing the Permanent Collection: The Viewer’s Voice highlights works from the Haggerty’s permanent collection that have been selected by the Marquette community. The featured works represent a wide range of styles, processes, and media created by Renaissance to contemporary artists from diverse locales. Each participant wrote a brief reflection on the piece they chose, expressing why they were drawn to the work and, in the case of some professors, how the work is used in their teaching practices.

Each installment of the Current Tendencies exhibition series has differed slightly. For this show, participating artists from Milwaukee responded to works chosen from the Haggerty Museum’s permanent collection. The featured artists 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. This exhibition model aims to elicit fresh perspectives about the artists’ work by making conceptual or aesthetic connections to work from the permanent collection.

Re-Seeing the Permanent Collection: The Viewer’s Voice
August 21-December 22, 2013

The Viewer’s Voice features pieces from Haggerty’s permanent collection selected by Marquette faculty, staff, and students. Project participants have varying educational backgrounds such as Nursing, English, Engineering and Theology. All of the works were picked based on personal aesthetic preference and each participant wrote a brief reflection that explains their choice and respective analysis. The reflections serve as wall text for the selected works of art and are also available online through the Haggerty’s website.
