Current Tendencies: Ten Artists from Wisconsin

March 12 – June 14, 2009

Opening Reception Thursday March 12, 5-7 pm

The Haggerty Museum’s Current Tendencies Ten Artists from Wisconsin will feature recent work and new installations by contemporary artists in Wisconsin. The ten artists in the exhibition -- Jennifer Angus, Peter Bardy, Anne Kingsbury, Colin Matthes, Shana McCaw and Brent Budsberg, T.L. Solien, Sonja Thomsen, George Williams, Jr. and Xiaohong Zhang. The art in the exhibition will range from paintings, drawings and photographs to mixed media. Site specific works are being created by Angus, Matthes and McCaw & Budsberg specifically for this exhibition. These works will subvert various spaces throughout the museum. In addition to these installations, one gallery will be dedicated to the work of the late Peter Bardy, a self-taught artist from Milwaukee who transformed his home into a private world. This will be the first ever exhibition of Bardy’s sculptural work which was largely unknown until his untimely death earlier this year. New work by Sonja Thomsen and Xiaohong Zhang will be featured in the exhibition along with variety of works by Anne Kingsbury and paintings by T.L. Solien and George Williams, Jr
